For additional information on research topics that are of interest to the CAQ, you are encouraged to review the descriptions at https://www.thecaq.org/rab-request-proposals-topics-interest-2019.

This grant solicitation is in addition to the Access to Audit Personnel Request for Proposals (RFP), https://www.thecaq.org/access-audit-personnel-request-proposals-2019, which is run jointly by the CAQ and the Auditing Section of the AAA.

Access to Audit Personnel Program

Proposal Deadline: Monday, February 4, 2019; 12:00 Midnight PDT

Now is the time to develop your proposal for the Access to Audit Personnel Program! This is a unique opportunity to conduct behavioral research on issues related to audit practice with audit firm personnel as your study participants. The CAQ created this program in conjunction with the Auditing Section of the AAA to help scholars gain access to auditor participants for behavioral research.

The Access to Audit Personnel RFP can be found at https://www.thecaq.org/access-audit-personnel-request-proposals-2019, and you can submit your proposal by using the online application form at https://thecaq.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0lGxyV8Jw2vxIZn

A committee of senior academics and practitioners will evaluate proposals based on: (1) ability to address important research questions that are relevant to practice, (2) ability to contribute to academic literature, (3) methodological soundness, and (4) level and extent of resources requested. Information on the application and proposal review process can be found on the CAQ’s website Access to Audit Personnel page, http://www.thecaq.org/research/access-audit-personnel-program.
