Topic Background:

Internal controls are normally thought of as something of concern only to accounting and auditors. However, any area that authorizes use of resources, control of assets, provides information should be concerned with internal controls also known as management controls.

All areas are subject to audit and need an internal control system in place to help minimize audit criticisms. Management must understand the importance of controls, the risks in circumventing the controls and the ramification. Internal controls are systems, policies, procedures and practices that are used to detect or prevent errors of commission and omission. Internal controls should safeguard an entity's assets, which include accurate financial records. Internal controls also promote operational efficiency and encourage adherence to prescribed managerial policies and procedures as well as laws, rules and regulations. Effective internal control is a cornerstone of successful management.
