Project 1: Analysis of 10-K -Hewlett Packard;1. Locate a 10-K of your choice from the SEC (www.sec.gov) or from the company web site (SEC Annual Filing ? 10-K). Present the company name and link to the most recent SEC 10-K report in the appropriate discussion for approval.;2. The company you select should have segments and references to noncontrolling interest in the SEC 10-K.;3. Explore the concepts of our chapter and notice how your company presents related information including segments;4. Prepare a report on disclosure issues related to the segment and noncontrolling interest information in the SEC 10-K.;5. Your deliverable should be two - four pages in length, single-spaced, with double spacing between paragraphs. Use one inch margins. Font should be 10 - 12 points. Use headings related to topics in our class.;6. Page count does not include copy and paste text or displays (such as a balance sheet).;Project 2: CAFR (Prince George's County, MD)and NFP (National Association For Gifted Children-990);1. Select a CAFR from a municipality in your area. Present the government entity name and link to the most recent CAFR in the appropriate discussion for approval.;2. Select an NFP statement and / or an IRS form 990 (must have an IRS Form 990).;3. The www.foundationcenter.org web site will be helpful to locate the most recently available form 990. Present the Not for Profit organization name and link to the most recent IRS form 990 in the appropriate discussion for approval.;4. Write a three to four page paper on the CAFR and a separate three to four page paper on the NFP. Relate topics from our textbook to your entity. Our discussion postings should assist you in completing your deliverables. The CAFR is your main resource for your government entity and the form 990 is the resource for your NFP. Consider too the concept of a Citizens' Centric Report (CCR). Refer to www.agacgfm.org for information on the CCR. A CCR is a 4 page document summarizing information and creating a presentation for citizens and other stakeholders. Your professor may accept a CCR in place of the paper (ask!). You may also ask about group project status for the CCR (see the final items on this list for more details about the group project, usually 2 students).;Prepare an eight slide Power Point presentation or create a Citizen Centric Report (CCR: templates and guidance at www.agacgfm.org) based on each paper to post in our discussion in week 8 for discussion and comments. Submit only the papers in the assignment folders. The Power Point presentations (or the CCR) will be posted initially only in the discussion. Note the separate due dates for each item: the CAFR paper, the NFP paper, and the two Power Point presentations (or CCR). This is a total of 4 documents, 2 for the municipality and 2 for the NFP. Your municipality may be at the local or state level. After the discussion you should submit your CAFR and NFP Power Point presentations. For this reason you will find four separate items in the assignment folder: CAFR_Paper, NFP_Paper, cafr Presentation, nfp Presentation.;6. The papers should be single-spaced with double spacing between paragraphs. Use one inch margins. Font should be 12 point. Use headings related to topics in our class.;7. Page count does not include copy and paste text or displays (such as a balance sheet).;8. Ask your professor if you prefer to create a group project with one other student (two students, one deliverable). This option, for the CAFR, the NFP, or both, is only available for those who wish to prepare a Citizen Centric Report (CCR) rather than a paper. You may be in one group for the CAFR and a separate group for the NFP or use one group for both.;9. Each student prepares their own Power Point file and presentation.
