of COSO’s board. PwC will seek input and feedback on the project, and

COSO is a committee of five sponsoring organizations, including the
AICPA, that come together periodically to provide thought leadership
on enterprise risk management, internal control, and fraud deterrence.
In 2013, COSO completed an update of its internal control framework
to reflect changes in technology and the business environment that
have taken place since that framework’s origination in 1992.
