AICPA Offers new Tech Designation

Many CPAs and their staffs perform technology-related services for clients and customers, so what distinguishes one practice from the other, and how/why does knowledge play such a key role in the process?

Make way for the new information technology (IT) accreditation for CPAs, known as the Certified Information Technology Professional (CITP) designation. CITP, the newest accreditation to be approved by AICPA, assists members in delivering a wide spectrum of information technology concerns based on specialized expertise.

News about the CITP was announced during the recent TECH 2000 conference in Atlanta, held May 9-12.

The CITP designation is granted only by the AICPA. It will be awarded to individuals who meet the following requirements: be an AICPA member in good standing; hold a valid, un-revoked CPA certificate issued by a legally constituted state authority; payment of a $500 fee that covers initial accreditation and materials; submission of a written statement of intent to continue to comply with all the requirements for reaccredidation and payment of an annual renewal fee, and verification of at least 100 points under the CITP Point System.
