 OMB Circular A-123 and COSO 2013

A CPE seminar about practical, cost-effective compliance with “Management’s Responsibility for Internal Control” for Federal Agencies.

The Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) is in the process of updating their Framework, "COSO". A three volumes set of new documentation was released for public comments on September 18, 2012. See our "Recent Issues Page" for further details on these documents.

This one-day CPE seminar is designed for government accountants, auditors, section chiefs, directors, finance managers, attorneys, IT professionals and CPAs who are working on OMB A-123 compliance. Learn how agencies comply with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) A-123. We also contrast compliance efforts with the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act which applies to public companies. Improve your Agency by Improving your Internal Controls!

OMB Circular A-123 is the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) circular that defines federal agency management's responsibilities for internal financial controls. It updated by OMB's Office of Federal Financial Management in December 2004 to address actions needed by Federal Chief Financial Officers, Chief Information Officers, and Program Managers.

This revision of A-123 called for a re-examination of the existing internal control requirements for Federal agencies and was initiated after the implementation of Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 compliance in public companies. The Circular and the statute it implements, the Federal Managers’ Financial Integrity Act of 1982, are at the center of the existing Federal requirements to improve internal financial controls.

The retail cost of this CPE seminar is $495.00 per attendee.

Benefits of Attending

The 2004 revisions to OMB’s Circular A-123 focused on management’s responsibility for internal control in federal agencies. The changes were in direct response to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act which required public companies to improve their internal controls over financial reporting. The revised circular went into effect in fiscal year 2006. This seminar’s instructors are cost-conscious internal control experts with experience in the public and private sectors. They have helped dozens of corporations comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and have presented this engaging seminar throughout the United States since the Act’s ratification in 2004. The instructors will candidly share their experience and present a pragmatic approach to compliance.
