The AICPA administers the overall peer review program with the help of local administering entities like the Peer Review Alliance (formerly Illinois CPA Society Peer Review Program). The Peer Review Alliance administers reviews for firms licensed in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Wisconsin not covered by the AICPA. The program helps individuals and firms find qualified peer reviewers, schedules reviews, and assists firms and reviewers with the peer review process. The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section below includes more information about peer review.
