Description:

AGH's peer review team assigns auditors experienced in the significant practice areas within the client firm. Team members have served clients ranging from large, complex commercial clients and governmental entities to small not-for-profits, with a strong specialization in "middle-market" closely held and family-owned entrepreneurial businesses.

Depending on the size of the client firm, the peer review team spends approximately one week onsite, ending with a management meeting to recap the visit and discuss any issues. The final peer review report and any recommendations generally are issued within 90 days. We will also maintain contact with you throughout the year to keep you updated on the latest issues affecting the peer review process.
