FY2024 Unit Internal Controls Certification Plan

FY2024 Unit Internal Controls Certification Plan

The Internal Controls Annual Gap Analyses, Written Procedures, and Certification Form have been updated for FY2024.  Key highlights are as follows:

Gap Analysis:

  • Employment
  • Travel & Expense (Concur)
  • Cash Handling (Credit Cards)
  • Journal Entry
  • Unit Administered Financial Aid
  • Stewardship of Gifts


  • Core elements of the certification process, such as Fiscal Stewardship, Financial Results, promoting the Compliance HotlineConflict of Interest/ Commitment, and Audit Services corrective action remain.
  • The Information Assurance question this year focuses on understanding Section III.A. (Security and Privacy) of the newly updated Procurement General Policies and aligning procurement processes with the requirements in Third Party Vendor Security and Compliance (DS-20).

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 the last few years.
