The February 6th deadline for submitting proposals for the 2020 Access to Audit Personnel grant cycle has passed. Thank you to those who submitted proposals this cycle. Awardees will be notified by Thursday, April 30, 2020. Please consider submitting a proposal next year. The 2020 Request for Proposals will be released this summer, and proposals will be due Thursday, February 4, 2021. 

The CAQ and the Auditing Section of the American Accounting Association request proposals for the Access to Audit Personnel program. The purpose of this program is to assist scholars in obtaining access to auditor participants for experimental/behavioral research.

Beginning in 2017, the Access to Audit Personnel program started accepting proposals that feature tenured faculty as the principal investigator.

A committee of senior academics and practitioners will evaluate proposals based on the following criteria:

  • Ability to address important research questions that are relevant to practice
  • Ability to contribute to academic literature
  • Methodological soundness
  • Level and extent of resources requested.

All proposals must include the most recent version of the study’s data collection protocol/instrument, which should be at an advanced stage of development. Instruments from successful proposals will be subject to further review, which may result in refinements. The expectation is that the CAQ Governing Board firms will administer the data collection protocols between June and August 2020.
