White Paper: GIPS Committees and Working Groups

April 2, 2018 by ACA Performance Services

Firms of all sizes frequently ask about the relevance and importance of forming a GIPS® Committee within their organization. Startup firms debate whether a GIPS Committee provides any added value when limited personnel causes constraints on resources. Conversely, well established, global entities often see the added value in having a committee but must weigh the operational burdens involved.

ACA Performance Services has surveyed a sample of our client base, including firms of various sizes, and put together a summary of the most frequently asked questions about GIPS Committees. The white paper linked below covers the following topics and more:

  • Maintaining a GIPS Committee or an informal working group
  • Application of a GIPS Committee within startup firms as well as established global entities
  • Frequency of committee meetings
  • Committee meeting topics and activities
  • Examples of GIPS Committee charters and meeting minutes



If you have questions about the paper, please email Christie Dillard.
