Construction Valuation Teleconference
Live Webcast on Hiring Incentives (HIRE) Act
Editor's Note
Bill Grabarek, Assistant Managing Editor As the economy climbs out of a recession, finance and accounting outsourcing (FAO) is expected to rebound, too. "As the global economy continues its path towards recovery, we expect to see the FAO market regain traction, driven by new deals and scope expansions," said Katrina Menzigian, vice president of research at Everest, a global consulting and research firm. Outsourcing, however, is not for everyone. As with most things, it has its pros and cons, which you will see in today’s edition. We’ve also included some QuickBooks articles because we know your appetite on the topic cannot be sated.

Sincerely,
Bill Grabarek
Assistant Managing Editor
