Fall 2022 Webinar Series

Selecting an Independent Auditor

Hiring a firm to provide audit services to your credit union is an important responsibility of the Supervisory Committee and can be the first step in developing a relationship with trusted professionals who have the training and knowledge to help your credit union in many ways. The first step in hiring a quality auditor is preparing a comprehensive request for proposal (RFP) that will allow you to obtain the information needed to decide about the qualifications of the firms and the value they can bring to your credit union.
