What We Do:
Annual Self-Assessment of Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting
Each year this assessment is prepared according to the prescribed method of controls testing developed by UNC General Administration’s Office of Compliance and Audit Services.
The Internal Controls Self-Assessment were developed as multipurpose tools to assess a unit’s compliance with internal controls. Selected departments will be asked to complete this self-assessment as part of the University-wide compliance testing program.
Departments should also use these self-assessments as guides for managing important financial controls within their units. We encourage you to review these documents periodically to assess your unit’s compliance with proper internal controls.
Based on a risk assessment or request, identified processes are reviewed, documented and the designed controls tested.
