As a result of new regulations, the CEO and CFO of our General Partner are required to submit various certificates to the SEC related to our filings. In June 2002, the SEC ordered that the CEO and CFO of certain publicly-traded companies file sworn statements regarding recent filings that they had made with the SEC (Order 4-460). We filed these certificates in conjunction with our second quarter of 2002 Form 10-Q. The SEC also posted these certificates on its website, www.sec.gov.
In July 2002, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act was signed into law. This act requires ongoing certifications to be filed by a CEO and CFO in connection with certain periodic reports filed with the SEC. We file with the SEC, as correspondence to our periodic reports, the certificates required under Section 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. We include the certificates required under Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act as part of our periodic reports (beginning with the Form 10-Q filed for the third quarter of 2002).
We have posted these certificates on this website for your review and convenience.
