Preparing for Audit Season: Building on the DoD Experience

Course Overview
Even as the federal government contemplates potential budgetary instability over appropriations, financial and audit executives plan to install and rely upon so-called process-centered controls. At the same time, many departments and agencies are now integrating enterprise-wide data into their financial and audit plans. Jeffrey Green, a partner in the firm of Kearney & Company, explains what is necessary to bring the federal government even closer to full accountability of its finances and processes.
