One responsibility required of the Internal Control Program is to implement education and training efforts to ensure that employees have adequate awareness and understanding of internal control standards and evaluation techniques. As all employees have a responsibility for and play a role in the University’s Internal Control Program, it follows that they should receive appropriate training on internal controls.
The Internal Control Officer worked with each campus unit in the fall of 2005 to train the managers on internal controls as part of the process of assessing its vulnerability to risks. On-going education and training is directed at staff, middle managers and executive management. In 2008, a new online compliance training program was unveiled and beginning in 2009, the online compliance training program includes an internal control training module. The intention of this current on-going training process is to enhance each employee’s understanding and awareness of internal controls and the part that he or she plays in the University’s Internal Control Program.
