Professional Issues Committee
The mission of the Professional Issues Committee (PIC) is to monitor, evaluate, and comment on auditing standards proposed and promulgated by relevant professional organizations. In conjunction with other ALGA committees and the Board, we also identify and respond to issues facing the audit profession. 

We monitor several standard-setting organizations and respond to their exposure drafts, write articles for the Local Government Auditing Quarterly, and do presentations on auditing standards in webinars and at ALGA trainings. The ALGA Board has endorsed a set of principles that guide us in developing our comments. PIC is currently working on reviewing these exposure drafts. Our comments to exposure drafts are available to ALGA members and the public!

The Professional Issues Committee meets in the even numbered months of each year.
