Firms need to complete the firm profile datasheet and submit it to the State Auditor’s Office along with the required documentation mentioned in the firm profile datasheet by the date specified by the State Auditor.

Application Review Process

The Office will conduct an extensive review of each application.  The areas of review include verification that educational requirements have been met, the firm’s documents such as professional liability insurance, New Mexico firm permit, etc. are current and  a review that the firms are in compliance with requirements set forth in the Audit Rule relating to due dates, late audit notifications, quality of work, etc.

Limitations / Restriction

Upon finalizing the review of the firm profiles the firms will fall into one of several categories:

1) Approved
2) Restricted (often limiting the number of audits they are eligible to perform)
3) Disqualified
