While the 1992 COSO Framework (1992 Framework) is still in effect, COSO has indicated that the 2013 Framework will supersede the 1992 Framework, effective December 15, 2014. The SEC has stated that the longer an entity continues to use the 1992 Framework beyond the transition date, the more likely they are to receive questions from the Staff about such use. As a result, many public entities have begun to evaluate the impact of the 2013 Framework on their assessment of their system of internal control. Furthermore, during the transition period, while COSO has indicated that use of the 1992 Framework is appropriate, COSO and the SEC Staff have indicated that management should disclose in their annual assessment which version of the framework is used.
