Net Impact of the XBRL Mandate Survey »

The requirement to provide financial statement information using eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) has led to technological innovation that has fundamentally changed how most companies prepare and file 10-Ks and 10-Qs.
FERF, in cooperation with SEC Professionals, wants to understand filers' views on how their processes for creating and filing reports with the SEC have changed as a result of the XBRL requirement. If you work for a publicly-held company, please forward this survey to the professional within your organization who is responsible for XBRL.
For more background on the use of XBRL in financial filings, please read this article in FEI Daily. 



2015 Technology Issues for Financial Executives Survey »

Are You Getting Enough Value from Your IT Investments?
FERF, in collaboration with FEI's Committee on Finance & IT (CFIT) and Gartner, is promoting the 16th annual Technology Issues for Financial Executives survey.  We do this survey each year to get your perspective on how the finance function uses IT.
*All survey respondents who provide an e-mail address will be entered into a drawing for $250 cash.




FERF surveys FEI members annually on Audit Fees, Executive Compensation, Financial Operations, Goodwill Impairment and Technology Issues. Other surveys are done on timely and relevant topics, such as health care, financing, and XBRL tagging.
Our goal is to get FEI members to share useful information with their peers, because the more members participate, the better information we all have to work with.
We always welcome your suggestions on how to provide better information more efficiently. Please let us know if there are other topics on which you would like us to survey members by contacting Bill Sinnett, Senior Director of Research, at or 973-765-1004.
