Reconciliations of all University accounts are required to maintain the integrity of the University’s accounting records and to protect the interests of the University. Reconciliations are essential for an effective internal control environment so that:
- The information transmitted to, contained in, and reported from the University's financial systems is accurate, complete, and recorded in a timely manner;
- The information can be relied upon for making financial and administrative decisions; and
- Irregularities are quickly detected, reported to the appropriate authorities, and resolved to prevent recurrences.
