Changes to Section Active oversight processes, including regular and ongoing monitoring process, for the prevention and early detection of fraud and errors in program administration are vital to public confidence and the appropriate and efficient use of public resources.
Changes to Section Systems of internal accounting and administrative control are necessarily dynamic and must be routinely monitored, continuously evaluated, and, where necessary improved. Reports regarding the continuing adequacy of the systems of internal accounting and administrative control of each state agency are necessary to enable the executive branch, the Legislature, and the public to evaluate the agency’s performance of its public responsibilities and accountability.
Changes to Section All levels of management of the state agencies must be involved in assessing and strengthening the systems of internal accounting and administrative control to minimize fraud, errors, abuse, and waste of government funds.
Changes to Section State agency heads shall implement systems and processes to ensure the independence and objectivity of the monitoring of internal accounting and administrative control as an ongoing activity.
Changes to Section The report, including the state agency’s response to review recommendations, shall be signed by the head of the agency and addressed to the agency secretary, or the director of the agency and submitted to the Legislature, BSA, Controller, Treasurer, Attorney General, Governor, Finance, and the State Library.
Changes to Section Because sound internal accounting and administrative controls and the regular and ongoing monitoring of those internal controls significantly inhibits waste of resources and thereby creates savings, Finance and agencies/ divisions shall carry out the provisions using existing resources.
How does SB 617 impact FISMA?
It reinforces the risk assessment framework. It reinforces the need to continuously monitor controls. Requires more copies of the report (Controller, Treasurer, and Attorney General). Does not really change the current process and reporting.
