answer these three questions separately. Thanks. a) Information is valued by a company from the benefits realized from the information over the costs of producing the information.   When would a company produce information whose costs exceeded its benefits?  Can you think of any examples?  If you can’t, that’s ok, just make a note that you can’t think of any circumstances where this would be the case. b) You are a manager tying to determine if a task/department should be “offshored” or “outsourced”.  What considerations would effect your decision between offshoring or outsourcing?   c) Do you think operational accountants should take a role in the AIS computer acquisition process? Or should the the role be left to the computer specialists? Explain.
