State University of New York at Albany--Financial Management Practices. Report 94-S-85.
New York State Office of the Comptroller, Albany. Div. of Management Audit.
This report is the result of an audit of selected financial management practices of the State University of New York (SUNY) at Albany for the period April 1, 1992 through July 31, 1994. The audit addressed the following practices: cash, payroll, purchasing, revenue accounting, accounts receivable, and computer contingency plans. The report concludes that SUNY Albany has, in general, established effective controls over its resources. Improvement opportunities are, however, identified in the following areas: payroll changes to ensure that paychecks are not generated erroneously; purchasing practices; cash controls; and computer center contingency planning. Comments by SUNY officials generally concur with most of the report recommendations. After an introduction summarizing the audit's findings, a section is dedicated to each of the major areas investigated. Appendices list major contributors to the report and present the comments of SUNY officials. (DB)
