About American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) is the world’s largest member association representing the accounting profession, with more than 400,000 members in 128 countries, and a history of serving the public interest since 1877. The AICPA sets ethical standards for the profession and U.S. auditing standards for private companies, nonprofit organizations, federal, state and local governments. It develops and grades the Uniform CPA Examination, and offers specialty credentials for CPAs who concentrate on personal financial planning; forensic accounting; business valuation; and information management and technology assurance. As data security is paramount to the AICPA, they engaged Dynamic Benchmarking to create a suite of surveys to support their ambitious goals. The first surveys, launched in 2014, include the National Management of an Accounting Practice (MAP) Survey (sponsored by the AICPA’s Private Company Practice Section (PCPS) and the Texas Society of CPAs (TSCPA), the Accounting Inclusion Maturity Model Assessment and the Journal of Accountancy Tech Success Survey.
