The Treasury is seeking nominations for its previously announced strategy to establish an Advisory Committee on the Auditing Profession -- a committee charged with studying the accounting profession and ways to keep the auditing profession vibrant and the U.S. capital markets competitive. Last month, Treasury selected former Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Arthur Levitt and former SEC chief accountant Donald Nicholaisen to help lead the effort. The committee is expected to take about a year to study topics such as the concentration of the Big Four and their exposure to potentially crippling shareholder lawsuits. The panel is scheduled to begin its work in the fall. Nominations should be sent to or Advisory Committee on the Auditing Profession Membership, Office of Financial Institutions Policy, Department of the Treasury, Main Treasury Building, Room 1418, 1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, D.C. 20220. Nominations must be received on or before July 11, 2007.
