What is Fiscal Assessment?

As required by the Administrative Policy Statement Fiscal Certification, officers must complete an annual Fiscal Certification, attesting that the University’s fiscal practices are being performed in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations, and policies, and that any irregularities brought to light have been or will be addressed appropriately. Through this process, officers share responsibility for the University’s annual institutional certifications and representations.

Each year, in order to contribute to an informed certification, additional populations of employees with fiscal responsibilities are identified and required to complete the Fiscal Assessment. This assessment consists of a series of slides and statements addressing fundamental internal controls. Participants in the mandatory Fiscal Assessment are asked to respond to these statements and comment on any areas of disagreement.
