MBA Essential Tip:
Internal Controls fall into two main categories - financial and administrative. You have probably heard of Sarbanes-Oxley. This is a major financial control that became law in the U.S. for public companies. It was named after Senator Paul Sarbanes and Representative Michael Oxley. It's long name is the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002.
It's purpose as stated on sarbanes-oxley.com is, "to improve quality and transparency in financial reporting and independent audits and accounting services for public companies, to create a Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, to enhance the standard setting process for accounting practices, to strengthen the independence of firms that audit pubic companies, to increase corporate responsibility and the usefulness of corporate financial disclosure, to protect the objectivity and independence of securities analysts, to improve Securities and Exchange Commission resources and oversight, and for other purposes."
"The individual is the central, rarest, most precious capital resource of our society." -Peter Drucker (1909-2005)
