Key Concept

Disclosure survey is a new type of survey in SAP Process Control 10.1 that is used to perform assessments at different entity levels – organization, control, and subprocess.

The need to comply with regulations (such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002) that have direct implications on how organizations handle disclosures is one of the driving factors for introducing disclosure survey in SAP Process Control 10.1. Organizations want to remain as transparent as possible when it comes to disclosure, especially when such disclosures can affect the financial statement of the organization.

SAP Process Control has always supported different types of surveys. The latest version of SAP Process Control offers an enhancement (disclosure survey type) to survey management that is aimed at helping organizations achieve more transparency about control effectiveness review and documentation. Unlike the other closely related functionalities (for example, sign-off), disclosure survey can be implemented at different entity levels: organization, control, and subprocess.
