What About spreadsheets?

• • • Spreadsheets are OK for “analysis” of data OK : Truck windows and returnable containers Not OK: MRP, capacity planning, supplier scheduling, inventory management, scrap reporting, etc.

Difficult to share information across departments Complex spreadsheet (e.g., macros, linked data) are dependent upon a few people to maintain • Spreadsheets do not validate data 13

Conflict Minerals Q&A

What are conflict minerals?

Currently include gold, tantalum, tin, and tungsten

What is the Conflict Minerals Rule?

Mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act Enacted by the SEC in August 2012

What does this rule mean?

Determine and disclose whether these raw materials in the organization’s supply chain originated at mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or its nine adjoining countries

• • •

Midwest User Group

Conflict Minerals Q&A

What if conflict minerals originated in the DRC or its neighboring countries?

The issuer must determine and disclose whether the sale of these minerals financed or benefited armed groups.

What does this Dodd-Frank act hope to accomplish?

Using minerals from “conflict” mines is legal, but human rights groups hope that the disclosure requirement will cause companies to source from conflict-free mines When are the first reports due?

The first Conflict Minerals Reports are due to the SEC on May 31, 2014, and will report on the 2013 calendar year.

Conflict Minerals Q&A

What if I am a privately held company?

While the organization may not be not required to report to the SEC, your customers, or your customers’ customers may have reporting obligations. These entities may require you to conduct similar inquiries and due diligence activities for the purposes of their own conflict minerals obligations.

How is the data collected and reported?

The EICC/GeSI Reporting Template is used to facilitate the exchange of data related to due diligence and smelter information between companies in the supply chain iPoint developed the iPCMP system, which is a web-based tool (database with reporting mechanism)which is recommended to manage data from the EICC/GeSI Template
