- Identify and describe the underlying problem or conflict.
- Compare the alternative courses of action.
- Explain the effects at issue.
- Recommend options that would be consistent with the accounting practices of the organization, accounting processes, and accounting-related departments.
- Include the last two years of published accounting statements.
