OACR Position Paper #2 Internal Controls and
Business Process Reengineering

bridges On September 9, 2003,
the OACR released its
second Enterprise Resource Planning
(ERP) Position paper entitled Internal
Controls and Business Process Reen-
gineering. As internal auditors, our
role includes the identification of op-
portunities for improvement of key
control and policy issues to be ad-
dressed during the course of the July
1, 2004 implementation of UF
Bridges- ERP. The University ERP im-
plementation provides the opportu-

nity to integrate business processes,
generate a comprehensive reporting
system, and provide an efficient and
effective processing environment
with recognition of different business
rules. Regardless of the funding
source, the same level of basic inter-
nal control objectives should exist
across the University and its affili-
ates. To view the full text of both
OACR position papers, visit the ERP

department of Human 4(.__
Resources, is responsi- '
ble for coordinating all
University of Florida
employee retirement and annuity
programs. Most university employees
have a choice of three primary retire-
ment plans: Florida Retirement Sys-
tem Pension Plan, Florida Retirement
System Investment Plan, and the
State University System Optional Re-
tirement Plan. Since the University is
in the process of transitioning to Peo-

pleSoft Human Resources Manage-
ment System on July 1, 2004, the Uni-
versity will acquire additional respon-
sibilities related to the management
of the retirement programs that cur-
rently reside with the Bureau of State
Payroll. Retirement plans were au-
dited to determine if employees were
enrolled timely and appropriately in
retirement plans to which they were
eligible. Adequate controls were in
place to ensure the proper admini-
stration of the University's retirement
plans & options.

What happens when OACR receives a complaint
involving fiscal misconduct?

The OACR maintains a
hotline at http://oacr.
ufl.edu/Hotline.htm (or
call 392-1391 ext. 30).
To facilitate reporting
of fiscal complaints,
every effort is made to protect the
identity of complainants. In most
cases, when a complaint is received
the first step is preliminary fact find-
ing. At the end of this stage, OACR

makes a determination of whether or
not to investigate and identify other
offices, if any, that should be in-
volved. If the OACR contacts you, you
can expect a courteous, thorough,
and professional interview intended
to develop relevant facts. At the end
of a review, the OACR reports its find-
ings to appropriate management and
if necessary to appropriate enforce-
ment agencies.

The administrator who is responsible
for the accomplishment of a unit's
goals and objectives is also responsi-
ble for establishment, maintenance,
and monitoring of the internal con-
trol system which keeps opportuni-
ties for fraud and error to a mini-
mum. One extremely important in-
ternal control is to ensure that duties
are properly separated. Duties must
be divided among different people to
