        Re:       Audit Documentation

        In order to clear up the confusion surrounding what documents are required for an ABC/BPA Audit, we are
        sending you a new checklist for you complete with samples.

        Moving forward, there will be two types of ABC/BPA audits.

        1) Standard Audit – details to follow

        2) Full Audit - includes full payment documentation – details to follow

        All Audit requests will be sent via email.

        Additional requirements for all Agents:

                 Audit request documentation must be returned within 5 business days

                 All Sub-Agents must be notified of ABC/BPA requirements and signed off (copy to us) that they have
                  read, understood and will comply with these requirements.

                 If you fail to respond or provide required documents in a timely manner we may be forced to cancel
                  your account. (Your failure to provide documentation to us may cause us to lose future authorization
                  from a Publisher)

       Please read the included information and sign below that you have read and understood the new ABC/BPA
       Audit Requirements. Once you have signed the document, please return to me by fax (508-374-8599) or by
       regular mail to Inc, 3000 Executive Rd, Suite 12, Winter Haven, FL 33884.
