Best practices, government regulations and policy standards all require organizations to build and document sound internal controls – both in government and out. Certainly not a new concept, ‘Internal Controls’ have come to mean so many things to so many diverse audiences. And by late 2023, decades-old models, like COSO and similar frameworks that were supposed to be the comprehensive all-in solution, have not always kept up with the speed of emerging risks and opportunities.
In this session, we’ll examine the broad concept of internal controls in government operations – what they are and especially what they aren’t. We’ll look at what works plus address the recurring reasons controls fail. You’ll also build an action checklist to close the divide between control purpose and control results in any government entity.
- Recognize what internal controls are – and what they most definitely are not
- Identify meaningful hard control procedures and soft control behaviors
- Recognize the real reasons controls fail over time, even in your organization
- Distinguish why and how to build a “How do I know?” culture at key control points
- Identify options for teaching showing employees and managers at all levels about Why a control is important before addressing the How and When of the procedure
- Recognize how to influence control improvement while respecting auditing standards covering independence
