Clark County Auditor’s Office releases its annual report on Internal Controls
Vancouver, WA — This report, Review of Selected Internal Controls, provides a review of internal controls surrounding receipting and handling of cash and checks in selected areas throughout the county. Overall, we found cash handling and receipting well controlled.
In 2012, Audit Services performed 30 reviews of the 79 cash fund accounts held by departments and offices in the county. These reviews included unannounced cash counts and examination of internal controls and other safeguards over processing and receipting of payments and cash funds. We provided 43 different recommendations to strengthen controls in 18 departments/offices within the county.
“This work is an important part of what the Auditor’s Office does to ensure the public’s assets are protected” County Auditor Kimsey stated. “We are pleased to find department managers are monitoring and reviewing their cash handling operations – this is a critical element of “setting the tone at the top” and maintaining effective internal controls.”
