Leveraging Internal Control Frameworks for Success

OL098-17  |  On Demand  |  Update  |  Self-Study


Good internal controls are important for both not for profit entities as well as governmental entities. There are several internal control frameworks that can help entities develop and document internal controls in order to be successful. We'll cover both COSO and the Greenbook and take a look at how internal controls can be leveraged for both financial reporting as well as compliance. This practical review will help entities think about how they can improve internal controls with the resources they currently have.

This video was recorded at the 2017 Governmental & Not-for-Profit Conference.
