FY2023 Unit Internal Controls Certification Plan

FY2023 Unit Internal Controls Certification Plan

The Internal Controls Annual Gap Analyses, Written Procedures, and Certification Form have been updated for FY2023.  Key highlights are as follows:

Gap Analysis:

  • Employment
  • PCard
  • Cash Handling (Cash/Checks)
  • Gift Cards
  • Human Subject Incentives Program
  • Capital Equipment


  • Core elements of the certification process, such as Fiscal Stewardship, Financial Results, promoting the Compliance Hotline, Conflict of Interest/ Commitment, and Audit Services corrective action remain.
  • The tracking of university-owned equipment is back.
  • The Information Assurance question this year focuses on reviewing and remediating critical vulnerabilities within the timeframes specified in the Vulnerability Management (DS-21) standard.

The certification timing will be as in the past, with official requests being sent out at the end of August and signed responses due at the end of September.  Requests will be distributed electronically (i.e., no paper mailing) and plans are for signature responses to be provided electronically, similar to last year.
