ACC 690 Milestone Three Guidelines and Rubric
Overview: The final project for this course is the creation of a white paper consisting of a report and spreadsheets. You will be placed in a scenario in which you
will take the role of an associate in a certified public accountant (CPA) firm. The CPA partners in the scenario ask you to create a report for the firm’s clients to
help address some of the questions they ask. You will address questions from the firm’s clients by assembling the necessary information in a written report
format. Your report should include spreadsheet examples. Topics addressed in the white paper will cover bankruptcy, interim and segment reporting, foreign
currency transactions, and nonprofit and governmental accounting.
Your three milestone assignments for this course consist of drafting shorter reports and supporting spreadsheets, which will prepare you for the completion of a
comprehensive white paper. You should use your instructor’s feedback from the milestone submissions to improve your final submission.
