 FCPA Expense Approval Matrix

For any type of expense pertinent to foreign transactions, it is mandatory to seek consent from few personnel. Depending on the type and amount of expense, the number of people to approve the transaction might change. Please take a look at the matrix below to get an idea of who must sign off on what kinds of gifts.

Who should sign off?

Your company is a major manufacturer of home-entertainment equipment, and you are planning a business trip to China to negotiate a contract with a major potential customer. During your visit, you plan to host an event to demo your latest product range to the company's senior management team and members of their families. During the event, you will also present each attendee with a voucher for significant discounts on the top 10 best-selling items being demoed. Indicate which of the roles below would be involved in determining whether the entertainment and gifts are legal, and whether any of the expenses are reimbursable. You may check more than one box, one box, or no boxes.
