  The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) launched an Internet portal for accountants employed in business and industry. The site ( www.ifacnet.com ) provides one-stop access to previously hard-to-find articles, guidance and tools. Thirteen accounting organizations, including the AICPA, together with IFAC, have agreed to share their electronic resources through IFACnet . Although there is no fee to use the site, some searches may identify documents or publications available for purchase.
