Achieving Government Program Compliance With Strong Internal Controls
Maintaining compliance over internal controls is an important factor in safeguarding public assets. Crowe Horwath LLP can help government organizations institute strong internal control environments by assessing risk, monitoring and testing existing controls, and developing strategies to demonstrate financial accountability.
Our government specialists keep up to date on evolving regulations and use our internal control integrated framework to:
- Evaluate internal controls based on Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) requirements to verify effectiveness of design and operation
- Set up control environments in compliance with Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards (SEFA) preparation, Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) uniform grant guidance, U.S. Government Accountability Office’s (GAO) Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government (Green Book), and other rules and regulations
- Develop procedures to prevent, detect, and correct financial, operational, and compliance errors
- Establish mechanisms to continually monitor the quality of internal control performance, including verifying adherence to the requirements of major programs
