Framework for evaluating internal control deficiencies

  • News default Image

02 Nov 2004

Nine large accounting firms, including Deloitte, have jointly issued A Framework for Evaluating Process/Transaction-Level Exceptions and Deficiencies for use in implementing Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

While the framework is not endorsed by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), and it should be read in conjunction with PCAOB Auditing Standard No. 2 on internal control audits, companies may find it a useful reference as they implement the requirements of Section 404.
