Over the past few years, the FCPA has gained a lot of attention. Record numbers of charges have been laid and fines and penalties have skyrocketed. Organizations have been provided with guidance in order to establish controls and programs to better comply with the FCPA. However, as with most issues surrounding compliance and ethics, it boils down to money. What most companies fail to recognize is that FCPA compliance doesn’t have to break the bank. Peter Millar wrote an article in Business Finance about making FCPA compliance sustainable.

In the article, Millar discusses how organizations need to look at efficient, cost-effective and sustainable compliance activities. Millar recommends starting with your organization’s internal audit (IA) function. Consult with IA to find out where the red flags are in your organization – you need to know where the risks are in order to prevent non-compliance.
