The Center for Audit Quality has issued a request for proposals for independent academic research related to auditing.

The new RFP is seeking projects that focus on policy issues that are a priority for the CAQ and the public company auditing profession, including audit committee effectiveness, audit quality indicators, professional skepticism, and the value of the audit.

Proposals are due by March 3, 2014, and will be reviewed by the CAQ’s Research Advisory Board. Grants will be announced on or about May 31, 2014.

The CAQ plans to make as much as $200,00 available for projects during this submission period.

This is the sixth year that the CAQ will award grants for academic research. In the past five years, its Research Advisory Board has awarded nearly 30 project grants.
