Product Description

Review

"The author provides an excellent framework for organizations to use in establishing and updating policies and procedures. This book is an excellent resource that auditors can use to steer management to as an example of a structured approach to policy and procedure development." ( Auditnet.org , June 2008)

From the Back Cover

Praise for Accounting and Finance Policies and Procedures "This comprehensive and practical tool enables accountants to produce documentation on policies and procedures in a quick and thorough manner. The URL download eliminates the tedious administrative setup work, and the detailed description within each section assists in the prevention of overlooking what we very often take for granted. This is not a how–to book; it is a tool that . . . will make your company documents look like you are part of a Fortune 500 company." — Leslie Kessler Brand , CPA, Corporate Controller, Porta Systems Corp. "For contract training on or off–campus, there is no faculty member more concerned with student learning and process than Rose Hightower. Rose is the preferred adjunct by numerous companies for their staff development in project management and finance and accounting especially for the non–financial manager. She, like her book, Accounting and Finance Policies and Procedures , takes a complicated subject and breaks it into manageable components." — Maureen Connolly , Dean, Berkeley College "Rose has developed a comprehensive policies and procedures program that allows you to standardize, train and assure compliance with financial policies on a worldwide basis. In today′s age of ever increasing technical complexity along with the global and diverse nature of organizations, a practical guide to establishing, formally documenting, and maintaining accounting policies will be of use to many firms, big and small. This guide will enable those firms to hit the ground running and significantly accelerate their completion of a solid policies and procedures program." — Douglas Robinson , CFO, Verint Systems Inc. "Policies and procedures are the foundation of internal controls for organizations. It is therefore very important that they be clearly written, current and comprehensive. Accounting and Finance Policies and Procedures by Rose Hightower provides an excellent framework for any organization to create this foundation. The merging of an online component recognizes the importance of a digital tool to update policies and procedures in a timely manner." — Jim Kaplan , President and CEO, AuditNet, LLC (www.auditnet.org)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for Managers and Auditors 2 Jun 2008
By James Kaplan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Policies and procedures represent the foundation of internal controls for organizations. It is important they be clearly written, current, and comprehensive. The author provides an excellent framework for organizations to use in establishing and updating policies and procedures. The book begins with a chapter on how to use the book. The book is structured as a final product that is supported by a Web site containing all the sample documents in Microsoft Word format. Rose explains the steps before getting started, followed by getting started with the program, developing the table of contents and a self assessment exercise. The rest of the book is devoted to sample policies and procedures. There is a continuity of structure for each document which details the scope, the policy, control/areas of responsibility, and contact and exhibit if necessary. Internal auditors are sometimes in a position where they recommend that management update policies and procedures or create them where none exist. This book is an excellent resource that auditors can use to steer management to as an example of a structured approach to policy and procedure development.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well laid out 14 Dec 2009
By Roger Arcand - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book seems to be well laid out and covers a broad amount of information. It is relevant for business with focus around accounting and controllership to support governance and good business practices. The book does not specifically focus on non-profit organizations but the principles and content is there to assist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ask the Policyguru 15 April 2008
By Rose Hightower - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Indicators that the time is right for a Policy and Procedure program
* Are you within the 99% of companies which have ineffective controls over financial reporting due to a "lack" within Accounting and Finance documentation, policies and procedures?
* Does your documentation reside within many server repositories and not easily accessible by employees?
* Do different areas use the same term or acronym to mean different things?
* Does your company work cross functionally, not in silos and as a team?
* Does the documentation undergo a review and approval cycle?
* Are policies and procedures linked to internal controls and audit checklists?

It is time for a documentation strategy refresh when there is a need for:
* A clear hierarchy of documents with...
o Policy setting the rules and principles setting the tone from the top
o Procedure classifying work phases linked to policies
o Work Instructions identifying step by step details linked to procedures
* Document ownership of the content and accountability for deployment
* Standardized templates, and process which ensures cross functional content review and approval
* A focused Program Manager to coordinate and manage the strategy, content and program
