Internal Controls

(May 6, 2005)

President Kermit L. Hall’s plan to revamp and reactivate the University at Albany’s Internal Controls Program has begun, with the names of members proposed for a new Internal Controls Steering Committee.

Responsibility for the Internal Controls Program and compliance have been assigned to the Division for Finance and Business.

Proposed members include: Kathy Lowery, internal control officer for Finance and Business; Leo Neveu, internal control coordinator; Vince Delio representing President Hall; Bill Hedberg representing the Provost’s office and Academic Affairs; Chris Bouchard for Student Affairs; Lynn Videka for the Office of Research; Vesna Gjaja for the Advancement division; Jim Walser representing the Internal Audit office; Jack Menzies, Information Technology security officer; and Janet Thayer of the University Counsel’s office.

According to New York State and SUNY mandates and guidelines, UAlbany must establish an Internal Controls Steering Committee. A campus-wide risk assessment program will be developed, implemented, and provided to all units. Annual reporting is required by the state and SUNY.
