Statements of Position

The Auditing Standards Board (ASB) is considering the issuance of a Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) to provide guidance to practitioners who may be engaged to examine or review management's discussion and analysis (MD&A) prepared pursuant to the published rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The ASB has observed the following since a proposed SSAE was first issued for exposure in 1987, and subsequently deferred: 1. Possible changes may occur in the existing financial reporting model as a result of the Comprehensive Model for Business Reporting proposed by the AICPA Special Committee on Financial Reporting. Such model is more forward-looking than the current financial reporting model; management's discussion and analysis that public registrants are currently required to prepare addresses certain elements proposed by the model. 2.

Existing guidance does not address a number of issues practitioners should consider in applying ...
