Peer ReviewThe American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) requires its member firms to undergo a peer review every three years. A peer review is a periodic external review of a firm's quality control system in accounting and auditing and is also known as the AICPA's practice monitoring program.  AICPA members engaged in the practice of public accounting are required to practice in a firm that is enrolled in an approved practice-monitoring program such as the Peer Review Program.

The Florida Institute of CPA's administers the AICPA Peer Review Program for both AICPA members firms and non-AICPA member firms. The program is designed to be educational for firms in public accounting to further enhance the quality in their performance of accounting and auditing work.  The program also allows for firms to communicate with their fellow peers on the objectives of the Accounting profession.
