As SUNY New Paltz administrators strive to achieve the college’s mission and goals and to
provide accountability for their operations, they need to continually assess and evaluate their
internal control structure to assure that it is well designed and operating effectively,
appropriately updated to meet changing conditions, and provides reasonable assurance that
the objectives of the department are being achieved.
An organization needs internal controls to provide greater assurance that they will achieve
their operating, financial reporting, and compliance objectives; in other words to help the
organization succeed in its mission. Internal control helps ensure that the directions, policies,
procedures, and practices designed and approved by management and the board are put in
place and are functioning as desired.
To understand an entity’s internal control, the auditor will evaluate the design and implementation of a control.
The auditor's primary consideration is whether, and how, a specific control prevents, or detects and corrects, material misstatements in classes of transactions, account balances or disclosures.
The heaviest emphasis by auditors is on controls over classes of transactions rather than account balances or disclosures
Strong internal control, including an internal audit function and an independent
external audit, are part of sound corporate governance. In banks, these are also important for
the safety and soundness of operations and can contribute to an efficient and constructive
working relationship between bank management and banking supervisors. Appropriate
communication between banking supervisors and banks’ internal and external auditors will
improve the effectiveness of audits and supervision.
