Maintain complete and accurate records.

All concerns regarding questionable accounting and business matters shall be immediately referred to Counsel for investigation. We shall review and evaluate the effectiveness of disclosure, and internal control policies and procedures, report any material weakness, make any other appropriate disclosures, and immediately take corrective action, and implement new polices or procedures as needed. -- See Acknowledgements.
