We have a system of quality control that includes “Peer Review.”  These reviews are conducted by independent CPAs, whose charge is to review our compliance with quality control standards and generally accepted accounting and auditing standards. Short & Company has participated in this program since 1990.  Our latest review yielded an “Unqualified Opinion” — the highest level of opinion rendered.
