As part of the normal audit cycle, we received word this week that representatives from the State Office of Legislative Audits plan to begin their audit of the campus on Monday, January 9, 2023.
The auditors will be on campus for approximately six months reviewing records and processes for the period covering October 2018 through December 2022. A general guide and reference to working with the auditors is available on the MAS Audit Information Site.
To conduct their review, the auditors will randomly select individual departments to review financial records (e.g., purchasing card, payroll, and cash receipt documentation). Requests will be sent out by Management Advisory Services (MAS) through the RT ticket system. If you receive a request outside of the RT system, please contact MAS at MASInquiry@umbc.edu.
Your cooperation with the auditors in helping to facilitate their reviews is greatly appreciated. I know that everyone works hard to strengthen our operations, and we welcome the opportunity to work with the auditors to find ways to be even more effective.
If you have any questions regarding the audit, please contact Megan Cherry or Michel Scott in Management Advisory Services at MASInquiry@umbc.edu.
