The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) has proposed revisions to the Uniform Accountancy Act (UAA) Model Rules. The AICPA has already approved CPA Evolution and thus changes are now needed to the UAA.

The proposed revisions make changes to the educational requirements for sitting for the CPA Exam. Changes include a focus on professional skepticism as well as data analytics.

The goal is to encourage uniformity between states for licensure.
