Peer Review Guidance During the COVID-19 Pandemic

During this stressful time of managing your busy season while contending with the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we understand the challenges that you are faced with in dealing with your peer review. We, as the Administering Entity for Alabama, Arkansas, and Mississippi along with the AICPA have taken immediate steps intended to make life easier for you in scheduling and completing your peer reviews coming due in the next few months.

We are taking COVID-19 very seriously. First and foremost, we want to protect the health and well-being of our members, staff and reviewers.

Offsite System Reviews
We understand the impact that travel restrictions and health concerns may have in your search for a peer reviewer and performance of your onsite system review. As such, for system reviews that are scheduled to commence prior to July 1, 2020, we have streamlined the process we will be very flexible in allowing such reviews to occur.

Extension Requests
We also recognize the impact the current situation has on the ability to have your peer review and any applicable corrective actions or implementation plans conducted by the due date(s). Please discuss with your peer reviewer if an extension would be appropriate. If called for, extension requests still need to be made through PRIMA. Again, though, we will be very flexible in granting your request.

For help with PRIMA, please see the instructions for requesting a due date extension in PRIMA or instructions for requesting a due date extension for a corrective action or implementation plan in PRIMA.
