Although growth has been steady in the amount of information provided in audit committee disclosures, significant opportunities continue to exist to enhance transparency in this area, according to the 2019 edition of the Audit Committee Transparency Barometer. A report issued jointly by the CAQ and Audit Analytics, the Barometer tracks S&P Composite 1500 proxy disclosures to gauge transparency around audit committee oversight of the external auditor and other key financial reporting topics.

In addition to presenting statistics on disclosure trends, the Barometer offers disclosure examples to illustrate how audit committees are enhancing information for investors and others.
