Changes to the COSO Integrated Framework (Edward D. Kimmich, CPA)


In May 2013, the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) released an update to its original internal control framework released in 1992. The framework has been widely accepted as a standard for designing, implementing, and conducting internal control and assessing the effectiveness of internal control.
Ed Kimmich’s presentation entitled “Changes to the COSO Integrated Framework – May 2013” will discuss the historic role of the COSO, the updated project scope and purpose, what has changed and what has not changed, the 17 new principles supporting the components of internal control, updated implementation suggestions, approaches and tools, and the timeline for transition. Questions and group discussion will follow the presentation.
