A 2015 Department of Labor study, “Assessing the Quality of Employee Benefit Plan Audits,” found serious problems with nearly 40% of employee benefit plan audits. The study reports that the size of an independent accounting firm’s employee benefit plan practice correlates with the audit quality. Deficiencies with audits were less common with firms auditing more than 100 plans per year.
