PIOB Nominations Process

The Monitoring Group (MG) is responsible for the overall governance of the international audit, assurance, ethics and independence standard-setting system, including oversight of the Public Interest Oversight Board (PIOB). This oversight of the PIOB includes the responsibility for the selection and appointment of board members to the PIOB.

The selection process utilizes the PIOB skills matrix that fosters leadership, expertise, and diversity of thought and geography. The MG endeavors to balance the nominee’s abilities and professional qualifications with the needs of the PIOB, such that the PIOB has the appropriate balance of knowledge, skills, experience and diversity for it to discharge its public interest and oversight role and responsibilities independently and effectively. The MG also seeks gender, geographical and experiential diversity on the PIOB Board.
