Our commitment to audit quality and professional excellence

RSM’s audit quality report is intended to provide a window into how RSM US LLP promotes and monitors audit quality. The report provides information on our audit practice, including various aspects of our system of quality control such as those related to leadership responsibilities, relevant ethical requirements, client acceptance, engagement team management, engagement performance and monitoring.

For us, it’s all about our clients. That’s why we have demanded audit excellence for nearly 100 years.

As professionals who provide opinions as to the fairness of financial statements, we define our clients as the users of those financial statements. Our clients are the shareholders of a public company, the owners of a private company and other stakeholders. For auditors, “serving clients” means providing services with objectivity, competence and due care for the benefit of the stakeholders who demand audit excellence.

Our commitment to audit quality and professional excellence provides information for our clients and others on matters directly related to audit quality, such as governance, leadership, independence, audit performance and monitoring.
