COSO's Exposure Draft, released in Dec. 2011 (comment deadline 3/31/12), updating COSO's 1992 Internal Control-Integrated Framework, can be downloaded from

Members of all of COSO's constituent organizations (the AAA (academics),  AICPA (external auditors), FEI (financial executives) IIA (internal auditors), and IMA (management accoutants), and other members of the public including audit committee members, attorneys, regulators and others, will find the updated internal control framework of interest, including its implications for management's and the auditor's reports on internal control over financial reporting required under Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 and related rulemaking of the SEC and PCAOB. Private companies should also consider implications of the updated COSO guidance with respect to internal control assertions that reference COSO in rep letters to their audit firms, and with respect to requirements placed on audit firms by AICPA standards applicable to audits of private companies. Read more in the FEI blog.
