To the Point - AICPA issues criteria for describing a set of data and evaluating its integrity


The AICPA’s Assurance Services Executive Committee issued criteria that management, boards of directors, internal auditors and other stakeholders such as suppliers can use to evaluate the integrity of data used in decision making.
