DCARPE™ Alliance

Decentralized Continuous Audit and Reporting Protocol Ecosystem

 

Developing and Promoting The Future of Assurance, One Block At a Time

About

An opportunity to participate in solving tomorrow’s problems, today.

Do you have a stake in seeing the audit information supply chain structured, standardized, simplified and sped up? Would you like to help lower the barriers of publishing and accessing trustworthy business reporting information of all kinds? Would you benefit from the right information being available at the right time, with comfort that the information is reliable and relevant? Would you like to benefit with representatives of the entire audit information supply chain to contribute to progress in this area? If so, you have a place in the The DCARPE™ Alliance!

The DCARPE™ Alliance represents members of the investment, accounting, audit, financial reporting, technology and academic communities, who are collaborating to encourage and adopt decentralized continuous audit and reporting protocol standards, using Auditchain.

Auditchain is the world’s first decentralized continuous audit and reporting protocol ecosystem for twenty first century business. Auditchain enables the real-time presentation of financial statements on a permission-only basis or to the general public.

Membership

The DCARPE™ Alliance is an all inclusive and non-profit organization. The DCARPE™ Alliance seeks to foster the standardization and interoperability of accounting, audit and financial reporting using the Auditchain protocol. Membership is open to all enterprises in most global juridictions.

What are the benefits?

Membership in the DCARPE™ Alliance provides not only the benefit of being able to help prioritize and develop the direction of the Auditchain Network and Alliance, but also the opportunity to work closely with other thought leaders in the space, have advanced insights to tomorrow’s developments, and gain visibility as a leader. This includes:

  • Participation at all general, annual and special meetings of the DCARPE™ Alliance; webcasts will tie the group together globally; regional meetings will bring participants together; international conferences will bind the group together.
  • A voice in prioritizing the group’s efforts
  • Speaking opportunities at DCARPE™ Alliance events
  • Logo placement on the DCARPE™ Alliance website
  • Enhanced access to expertise
  • Members-only sessions on AI, analytics, blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, continuous auditing, data level assurance, machine learning, smart contracts and other emerging topics, available live and on-demand.
  • Opportunities to propose technical contributions to the Auditchain network
  • The ability to propose and contribute to whitepapers
  • Opportunities to represent DCARPE™ Alliance before analysts, journalists, regulators and other communities

Through participation, you become part of a larger group, whose point of view can be communicated to regulators, to standard setters, to service providers and others.

What are the requirements?

In the early days of the Alliance, we will form groups to bring consensus on the needs of each of the stakeholder communities and business supply chain groups represented. That will mean you will get out of it what you put into it. We will have peer discussions and then share the needs as a whole. We will also have educational sessions. This will include:

  • Academic supply chain
  • Analyst supply chain
  • Auditor supply chain with internal and external sub-groups
  • Enterprise supply chain
  • ERP and software developer supply chain
  • Financial reporting and investor relationships supply chain
  • Technologist supply chain
  • Regulator supply chain

Obligations beyond joining, identifying representatives to be on the mailing lists and calls, and agreeing to minimal intellectual property conditions are few. As the group matures, we will develop working groups to put the ideas into action. Groups of domain specialists will identify market needs; communicators will drive a marketing subcommittee; ambassadors will help drive Alliance meetings regionally.

What are the costs?

There is no cost for membership through June 15, 2018. Costs related to leadership, administration and communication will be borne by Auditchain and other sponsors for that period. Physical meeting costs will be cost recovery only, and may be borne by volunteers or sponsors.
