Create a research proposal by selecting a company that garnered significant coverage in the media or the judicial system in the past ten (10) years. Write a proposal that can be expanded upon for a final research project at a later date.
As you create your proposal, keep in mind that, in the final research paper, you will be addressing the questions below and providing your recommendations for changes to minimize the risks of fraudulent financial reporting.
These questions do not need to be answered in this proposal, but must be considered when selecting the organization. (1) the internal control system (include some specifics)? (2) the overall corporate governance system? (3) what actions are required to correct the deficiencies? Include a biblical integration, formatted to be fully compliant to current APA standards, including a title page, abstract, and references. The reference list must include at least two (2) professional/scholarly, peer-reviewed sources in addition to the course textbook and the Bible.
Sources may include personal interviews (properly cited and referenced) with persons who have intimate knowledge of the fraudulent activities. The biblical integration should NOT be an afterthought (a devotional that has nothing to do with the content), but it should be purposefully integrated into the project.
