Ottawa Speakers Series Event: November 23, 2006
Join us on November 23 for a presentation entitled The
Federal Accountability Act (FAA) and Public Opinion Research (POR): Are
You Ready? One section of special interest to public opinion researchers
states that the Government will "instruct all departments and agencies
to conduct risk-based audits of (advertising and) public opinion research
activities and processes." David Ang, The Antima Group and Darren Budd,
PricewaterhouseCoopers, will answer some of the basic questions such as:
"What is a risk based audit?"; "Why should I care about the
FAA?"; and, "What should I do to prepare my organization?".
In addition, we'll share with you lessons learned from other (non POR) organizations
that have to comply with risk based audits, and present an overall approach
you can use to start addressing this upcoming Government regulation.
