The Coming Overhaul of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement

Yesterday, the SEC’s Inspector General issued a 46-page report with a list of 21 recommendations to improve the Division of Enforcement. In addition, the IG issued a 86-page report with a list of 37 recommendations to improve the Office of Inspections and Examinations. Implementation of these recommendations will result in a radical overhaul of these parts of the SEC.

Both Enforcement and OCIE concurred with the recommendations – and are required to submit corrective action plans to the IG within 45 days. Actual implementation of these corrective actions may take quite some time as some will require quite a bit of work (and funding), like the creation of a database for tips and complaints. Here is a WSJ article – and here is a NY Times article regarding the report.
