Avoiding Surprises and Assessing Risks: Building
on Today’s Internal Controls

September 14 | 1–2:50 p.m. CT | 2 CPEs | FOS: ACCG

Learn how governments across the country are strengthening their internal control processes by setting new parameters for risk management. These new parameters help governments identify challenges early, bring them to the attention of agency leadership and develop solutions. On July 15, 2016, the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a revised version of OMB Circular No. A-123, which addressed internal controls. The revised circular was broadened and now addresses Management’s Responsibility for Enterprise Risk Management and Internal Control. Similarly, under North Carolina’s Enhancing Accountability in Government through Leadership and Education (EAGLE), each agency must perform an annual assessment of internal controls over financial reporting and compliance. By performing this assessment, agencies can identify risks and compensating controls that reduce the possibility of material misstatements, misappropriation of assets and noncompliance with governmental rules and regulations. This webinar will examine emerging trends in internal control by examining both the federal and North Carolina initiatives.
