NC State’s Financial System contains official university records that are used by management at all levels, as well as by stakeholders such as the State of North Carolina, the UNC System, grantors, investors, and contributors. The financial strength and viability of the university is shown in the financial statements. To maintain the integrity of those numbers, each unit must do its part in accurately recording, reconciling, and documenting all financial activity.
A recommended best practice for each department/college is to establish and document a control process for tracking and reconciliation of all financial transactions, with approval and review by the appropriate levels. This process should ensure that all financial transactions under the department’s/college’s control are recorded accurately and appropriately, and that review, reconciliation, and tracking is done on a regular and timely basis.
