Release of Final CEIV Mandatory Performance Framework (MPF) Documents

Jan 24, 2017

Certified in Entity and Intangible Valuations TM (CEIV TM) credential holders will be required to comply with the Mandatory Performance Framework (MPF), ensuring confidence in the consistency and transparency in their work. The MPF is a practical, non-authoritative framework that defines the level of documentation and performance necessary to provide supportable and auditable fair value measurements. The purpose of the Framework is to provide valuation professionals with guidance on “how much” documentation is required when performing fair value measurements of businesses, business interests, intangible assets, certain liabilities, and inventory for financial reporting purposes. View final Mandatory Performance Framework and Application of the Mandatory Performance Framework documents here.
