ASSURANCE STRATEGY GROUP
David McBain, Head of Audit and Assurance at Johnston Carmichael LLP, was recently elected to the position of Chairman of the Assurance Strategy Group (ASG), formed earlier this year. The group was formed to allow the International Professional Standards Committee (IPSC) to focus on quality assurance and risk management within the network.
The ASG is primarily responsible for establishing a clear strategy for further developing assurance services in the PKF network and to drive the implementation of assurance initiatives and support. It is further required to provide input and guidance to the IPSC to determine the correct focus for support initiatives, based on identified strategic opportunities.
