Improving Fiscal Integrity and the Role of Internal Control

Patrons IV

One of the most critical components of an organization’s financial management system is its internal control. Under the Uniform Guidance, internal control is considered essential for minimizing fraud, waste, and abuse. Noncompliance with federal regulations can often be traced to an inadequate system of internal controls. Do you know if your organization’s controls meet expectations? Or are inadequate, or even nonexistent, creating serious compliance issues?

• Overview of an effective internal control structure
• Internal Control Framework

• The components of internal control

• Areas of internal control posing the greatest risk to your organization and ways to strengthen entity controls
