The Impact of a Computer Based Information System (CBIS) on Foreign Investments Opportunities.
Goodwin, Chester
The purpose of this paper is to analyze the impact that computer based information systems (CBIS) could have on U.S. multinational corporations operating in Canada, particularly in the province of Quebec, and the implications for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that went into effect on January 1, 1994. The study focused on how the data processing, internal audit, and financial intelligence subsystems of a financial information system can affect the success and viability of foreign investments. The study showed that when the management information systems (MIS) are viewed as an organizational resource, the financial information systems (FIS) must be properly designed and implemented so that financial goals of the foreign subsidiaries, and those of the parent company, are communicated to the appropriate responsibility levels within the organizational hierarchy through the output subsystem.
