PCAOB to Consider 2022 Budget at Open Meeting on November 23

Washington, Nov. 17, 2021

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) will hold an open meeting on Tuesday, November 23, at 10:00 a.m. ET. At the meeting, the Board will consider the adoption of the PCAOB budget for the 2022 fiscal year.

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

Given the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the PCAOB’s open meeting will take place virtually. Members of the public can listen to the audio-only meeting using the following numbers:

Following the meeting, a recording will be made available on the PCAOB website.
