The Risk and Controls Manual explains internal controls and how establishing effective controls can help ASU achieve its operational, financial and administrative objectives.
Cover Your Assets: Fraud and the Control Environment
Participants will learn the “Red Flags” of fraud and how a well-designed control environment can provide reasonable assurance in preventing fraud while also helping ASU departments achieve operational, financial and administrative objectives.
Class participants will learn to understand internal controls and how to effectively balance risks and controls. A portion of the class will address specific controls and institutional requirements related to cash handling, including receipts processing, deposit preparation and safeguarding of funds.
The class is designed for employees involved in the processes of receipting or depositing funds as well as those responsible for ensuring that organizational goals are accomplished. Administrators, managers, supervisors, cashiers and clerks are highly encouraged to attend. For a class schedule, contact Emily Knopp at firstname.lastname@example.org, ASU director of audit services.
