'R Audit Focus ...

A quarterly newsletter from the Office of
Audit & Compliance Review

Follow-up on Audit Recommendations

Professional standards prescribe that
our audit efforts include "follow-up"
on the actions planned by clients to
address the concerns we report. The
follow-up process, scheduled quar-
terly, typically involves renewed con-
tact with clients to evaluate whether
the audit concerns have been effec-
tively addressed. Our office also per-
forms follow-up for audits performed
by the State Auditor General.

Depending on the type of engage-
ment, it is not unusual to have find-
ings or comments. It is important
that internal and external audit find-

ings are addressed in a timely man-
ner. If issues are identified, deci-
sions to forego corrective action or
delay in implementation may gener-
ate additional risks to the unit and/or
the university.

The results of our follow-up review
are communicated to management
and the Board of Trustees Audit Com-
mittee. We are pleased that the uni-
versity continues to achieve timely
resolution, with nearly 80% of recom-
mendations addressed during the
current fiscal year.


Human Resources recently imple-
mented ePAF to simplify data entry
procedures for HR transactions in the
myUFL system. Forms are short and
easy to fill out. Built-in logic short-
ens data entry time and reduces data
entry errors. The system also pro-
vides a historical record of job ac-
tions. Departments can now hire,
edit existing jobs, change employ-
ment status, submit leave cash-outs
and enter additional pay with more
accuracy and efficiency. Please con-

tact the HR office to schedule training
or find out more information.

Information Technology Security

We recently audited critical and sen-
sitive data at 25 university units.
While most areas had excellent IT se-
curity, one area of needed improve-
ment for the majority of areas was in
data backup/recovery procedures
and contingency planning. In the

event of a disaster, such as a hurricane
or fire, operations could be signifi-
cantly hampered. We recommend that
units adhere to the Office of Informa-
tion Technology policies and standards
found on the web at http://

Departments are reminded that vehi-
cle logs are required when driving a
University vehicle. The only excep-
tions are some campus service vehi-
cles, farm equipment and golf carts.
All other vehicles require mainte-
nance of a vehicle use log to docu-
ment that the vehicle was used for
University business.

Controllers' Memorandum dated
March 30, 2000 (http://
doc= defines four vehicle
classifications as: 1) fixed route, 2)
fixed purpose, 3) assigned and 4)
general purpose.
