The Board of Trustees approved a char-
ter for its Audit & Operations Review
Committee in June. In response to acts
of corporate fraud, Congress enacted the
Sarbanes-Oxley Corporate Accountability
Act in 2002. Although Sarbanes-Oxley
focuses on publicly traded organiza-
tions, audit committee charters are
highly recommended for universities.

The Audit & Operations Review Commit-
tee is charged with monitoring the audit
process through independent audit com-
munication and information flow. The
Charter specifies the scope, responsibil-
ity, organization and duties of the com-
mittee, and the ethical standards for the
committee members.

We audited the Ga-
atorLink torLink authentica-
tion services and de-
termined GatorLink
to be a secure and reliable authentication
system for the University's campus com-
puting services. Areas where improve-
ments could be made were password re-
sets, account maintenance, and contin-
gency processing.

GatorLink was developed as a single user
identifier and password to access Uni-
versity information system resources. It
is overseen by a team from the Center
for Instructional Research and Comput-
ing Activities (CIRCA) and UF Computing
and Network Services (CNS). GatorLink
identifiers (IDs) are required for all stu-
dents, staff, and faculty. Currently,
there are over 87,000 non-expired Gator-
Link accounts. The ERP will use Gator-
Link as its authentication control.

International Programs

The University promotes overseas study
for its students as a fundamental part of
its strategic objective of internationali-
zation of the campus and the curricu-
lum. Colleges supplement their interna-
tional area studies curricula with inter-
national program contracts processed by
the University of Florida International
Center (UFIC). UFIC maintains and coor-
dinates more than 60 exchange program
contracts in over 20 countries, 22 study
abroad programs in more than fifteen
countries, and 122 general cooperative
international agreements in over 40
