The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) is soliciting feedback on the draft content proposed in the new Core and Disciplines CPA Examination structure. Stakeholders are invited to provide their input to assist in the development of new CPA Evolution Exam Blueprints and Exam design. The profession’s input is key to the AICPA’s practice analysis, which aims to determine the knowledge and skills newly licensed CPAs need to protect the public interest under the CPA Evolution licensure model. Suggestions on the preliminary content are welcome through September 7, 2021, and can be submitted by completing a brief survey.

More information on the current practice analysis, including general information, timelines and FAQs, can be found here and will be updated regularly.

“We’re excited to be kicking off this Practice Analysis and working to ensure the next version of the CPA Exam will be aligned with the CPA Evolution licensure model,” said Mike Decker, Vice President of CPA Examination and Pipeline, AICPA. “Developing an Exam that meets the needs of the profession well into the future requires input from stakeholders and I strongly encourage all interested parties to participate in the process by submitting their feedback.”

NASBA and the AICPA continue to collaborate on the CPA Evolution initiative, which recognizes the rapidly changing skills and competencies the accounting profession requires. A final report on the results of the practice analysis, including final CPA Evolution Exam Blueprints and related Exam design, will be published on January 1, 2023. The new Exam is expected to be launched in January 2024.
