Via Going Concern: Mike Oxley Pushing the Sarbanes-Oxley for Non-Profits

I don't have to tell you how I feel about Sarbanes-Oxley, you should already know. Not surprisingly, Mike Oxley thinks it's awesome. So awesome, in fact, he'd love to see non-profits adopt some of the legislation that shares his name.


If you’re a non-profit leader and free on April 12th, why not head to Washington and listen to Mike Oxley (yes, that Oxley, without whom SOX would still be the property of a certain Chicago baseball team and not the bane of accounting’s existence) speak about transparency and accountability for non-profits?

The ironic part, of course, is that non-profits don’t really have to suffer with the legislation named after Oxley but he’d like to see a little more, well, Oxley in NFP, even if it isn’t necessarily required by law.
