Practical Implementation of the Mandatory Performance Framework (MPF) for Fair Value Measurements to Enhance Quality

The Mandatory Performance Framework and its related applications (MPF) for the Certified in Entity and Intangible Valuations™ (CEIVTM)¹ credential have now been in existence for over three years. Considered best practice for valuation professionals who perform valuations of businesses, business interests, intangible assets, certain liabilities, and inventory used to support management assertions made in financial statements issued for financial reporting purposes and mandatory for holders of the CEIV credential, the MPF can be applied to most valuation engagements.

Our panel of experts will provide perspectives on how they have used the MPF in their practices to improve the consistency and quality of fair value measurements for financial reporting. The panel will discuss lessons learned through implementation and provide insights into what they would like to see in the future. You will also hear an auditor’s perspective on best practices around implementation of the MPF and how it can impact the ease of the audit.
