'R Audit Focus

A quarterly newsletter from the Office of
Audit & Compliance Review

Nur Erenguc, Chief Audit Executive
November, 2004

Restricted Gifts

Funds for Eminent Scholar Chairs, en-
dowed professorships, scholarships
and fellowships transferred by the
University of Florida Foundation, Inc.
to the University are restricted for
use by donor wishes known as donor
intent. To aid the interface between
the University and the Foundation,
the University has usually estab-
lished specific recipient accounts to
receive these restricted funds. Fund
administrators, deans, directors and
the appropriate vice president are re-
sponsible for the administration and
use of these funds in accordance

with donor intent. They should un-
derstand donor intent to effectively
administer and monitor fund use and
should educate staff involved in the
disbursement process. The annual
OACR audit determined general com-
pliance with donor intent in the use
of restricted gifts. Issues identified
and communicated included evalua-
tion for awards and improved under-
standing in the use of Eminent
Scholar funds. For further informa-
tion call Carole Silverman at OACR at
392-1391, ext. 30 or e-mail


Res ri te Gifts I



The University is five months into
the first year using PeopleSoft, the
web-based, integrated computer sys-
tem for UF financial, payroll, and hu-
man resources functions. The new
system brought the largest changes
ever made in UF business processes.
Many of these new processes are
complex. As such, there is more risk
that errors or irregularities may oc-
cur. Identifying risks leads directly
to determining control points that
can be implemented to help mitigate

them. To do this, each staff member
must be alert to any weaknesses in
the processes they work with each
day. Reconciliation of accounting re-
cords should continue to be prepared
periodically and reconciliations
should be resolved timely. Be proac-
tive in getting the training you need.
Refer frequently to the Bridges web
page "Get Trained" for new informa-
tion. OACR is available to assist in
reviewing internal controls; call 392-
1391 or e-mail auditor@ufl.edu.

Is there a cut-off time
the new system?

The Bridges website for Frequently
Asked Questions says, "No, the sys-
tem will allow you to request leave at
any time. However, it is highly rec-
ommended that your college and/or
department have an internal policy
regarding this." The myUFL menu
called "Manager Self Service" is for
approvers to check on a regular basis

leave too late in the pay period and
not getting it approved before the

approved on time.
