The importance of optimal allocations of resources to the internal control effort of firms is necessary in a competitive environment following some initiatives mandating such efforts.

Our analysis highlights some interrelationships among the parameters in the model, in addition to providing a cross-point solution for switching to lower levels of outlays.
