Personnel are defined in “Statement on Quality Control Standards (SQCS) No. 8 - A Firms System of Quality Control” as all individuals who perform professional services for which the firm is responsible, whether or not they are CPAs. (AICPA Professional Standards, vol. 2 QC sec. 10). This would include personnel, including leased and per diem employees, who devote at least 25% of their time in performing audits, reviews, compilations, or other attest engagements, or those professionals who have partner/manager level responsibility for the overall supervision or review of such engagements.


Scheduling & Evaluation fee

The scheduling & evaluation fee is due in the year of a firm's peer review, once your reviewer has been approved by NEPR and you have received confirmation from us. This fee covers:

Scheduling process / reviewer confirmation EC & technical reviewer training 
Reviewer communication Monitoring of peer reviews
Technical reviewer expense  Oversight process
Sole Practitioner (No Personnel) $550
2 - 5 Personnel $575
6 - 10 Personnel $615

An additional fee will be charged to peer review firms at the time a firm’s peer review is scheduled (every three years) if the firm performs A-133 engagements and/or ERISA engagements. These are the practice areas in which the Peer Review Program is experiencing increased costs for regulatory oversight which are requiring significant additional time on the part of our technical reviewers, administrator and committee members.

The Peer Review High Risk Practice Area Fee is $150 per high risk industry area (ERISA and/or A-133) with a maximum rate of $300. This is a fixed fee rather than a per engagement fee and will be added to the firm’s Scheduling & Evaluation Fee Invoice (billed when the review is scheduled) based on the data contained in the firm’s scheduling information regarding the type of high-risk practice areas they practice in.
