The Department of Homeland Security is required to obtain an audit opinion on internal control over financial reporting under the DHS Financial Accountability Act. With two material weaknesses remaining, in ITGC and Financial Reporting, the panelist will present DHS’ approach in using ITGC to posture the Department for sustainment of traditional manual controls, while improving data quality.

Learning Objectives:

• How to plan and conduct an assessment of financial systems that have greatest impact on significant business processes

• How to identify and test sources of information produced from financial systems

• Next steps in fully integrating application controls into the overall control environment to reduce traditional transaction testing


  • Susie Dossie, Director of Risk Management and Assurance, Office of the Chief Financial Officer, Department of Homeland Security
