Governance, Quality

and independence

Standards and processes that shape our culture

Governance at RSM US LLP ensures the sustainability of our business and transparency with our stakeholders. Our board of directors serves as our governing body, focusing on our strategic objectives and continuously guiding RSM in the tradition of quality, integrity and client service excellence that have been the hallmark of our firm since its inception in 1926.

To uphold this high standard, we expect everyone at RSM to take personal responsibility to maintain independence, protect our reputation and deliver service in a manner that reflects our values and our purpose to instill confidence in a world of change.

Our code of conduct is the road map for ethical behavior and sets the tone for what we expect of ourselves and how we build trusting relationships with our clients, colleagues and other stakeholders. The code is grounded in our values—respect and uncompromising integrity, succeeding together, excellence in all we do, impactful innovation, and stewardship: acting responsibly. Annually, all our people in the U.S., Canada, India and El Salvador are required to affirm their compliance with our code of conduct.

Each of our lines of business adheres to rigorous standards for client acceptance and an inspection program to raise awareness of opportunities for continuous improvement. Our assurance, tax and consulting services are delivered according to RSM policies, relevant technical and professional standards, and applicable laws and regulations.

In addition, RSM’s assurance practice has implemented a system of quality management that provides reasonable assurance that our firm and our advisors comply with professional standards and applicable regulatory and legal requirements, and that our firm issues reports that are appropriate in each circumstance. Read Our Commitment to Audit Quality and Professional Excellence for more details about audit quality at RSM.

As a member of the RSM International global network, RSM is required to comply with global ethics and independence policies, including establishing and documenting RSM’s independence, and that of engagement teams, prior to the provision of services. RSM uses InTrust as our system of record for independence evaluation. Any threat to or violation of independence is reported to and evaluated by the firm’s national office of independence for appropriate and immediate action.

Our firm does not tolerate bribery or corruption in any form and is committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships. We are committed to complying fully with the FCPA, CCFPOA, CCC, UK Bribery Act of 2010 and all other applicable anti-corruption laws and regulations.

The RSM ethics and compliance hotline allows any RSM employee, client or vendor who sees, suspects or knows about fraudulent, illegal or unethical behavior to report it. The hotline is staffed by an outside organization that specializes in gathering the necessary information to follow up on a reported concern. Individuals can file a report anytime, day or night, by phone (+1 800 913 5052) or online.
