PCAOB Postpones Consideration of its 2015 Budget and Strategic Plan

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board today announced that it is postponing consideration of its budget for the 2015 fiscal year and the related strategic plan. The Open Meeting for Thursday, November 20, is cancelled.

Action on the budget and related strategic plan will be rescheduled later this month.

Section 109(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 requires the PCAOB to establish a budget for each fiscal year no later than one month prior to the commencement of that fiscal year. The PCAOB fiscal year is the calendar year. If approved by the Board, the budget will be submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission for approval, as required by Section 109(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
