Erhardt will share responsibilities for the day-to-day operations of the Office of the Chief Accountant with Scott Taub and Andrew Bailey, including resolution of accounting and auditing issues, rulemaking projects, and oversight of private sector standard-setting efforts and regulation of auditors. She will also work closely with various international organizations, including the International Accounting Standards Board and the International Federation of Accountants, on issues relating to convergence of accounting, auditing and reporting standards.
