The following is a link to a new 9-page letter from the US Department of Justice providing guidance about enhanced Foreign Corrupt Practices Act enforcement, self-reporting, and the actions that are necessary for individuals and businesses to obtain cooperation status. The letter is only 9-pages – in this post I’m not going to summarize the letter because you can (and should) read the letter in about the same amount of time. Audit committee members need to read and understand this letter, and then be sure that the company has proper policies and procedures in place.
