The U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) published a report last month on the quality of benefit plan audits performed by CPA firms. The study was conducted using data from IRS Form 5500’s filed with the DOL dating back to 2011 looking at plans with a wide range of assets and total plan participants. It provided interesting insight into the quality of level of plan audits being provided to companies. Unfortunately, the findings revealed that the many of the plan audits being conducted are being done with a high degree of deficiencies and errors. To resolve the situation, the DOL has suggested that new regulations be created to more closely monitor the accounting profession and the audits.
