Internal Control Act Implementation Guide Issued
In September 2006, the New York State Internal Control Task Force (ICTF) issued the Internal Control Act Implementation Guide: Strengthening Compliance with the Act and Standards. The Guide was developed to assist Commissioners in ensuring their agencies comply with the Internal Control Act. The issuance of the Guide was as a direct result of several Task Force work groups comprised of more than 70 Internal Audit Directors (IAD) and Internal Control Officers (ICO) representing 46 state agencies and authorities. A copy of the Guide was mailed to each agency Commissioner, with a copy to each IAD and ICO.
Internal Control Task Force Created
In response to the Comptroller's audit report on State Agency Internal Audit Units' Compliance with the Internal Control Act (the Act), the Division of the Budget (DOB) -- in conjunction with the Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) and the New York State Internal Control Association (NYSICA) -- created an interagency work group to address both the internal audit (IA) compliance issues identified in the report, as well as to provide compliance guidance on the broader internal control (IC) requirements of the Act.
