2009–2010 Internal Control Summary and Certification

From the Vice President for Finance and Management
Buffalo State met annual certification requirements by submitting its 2009–2010 Internal Control Summary and Certification to SUNY on March 26, 2010. This is a critical submission for the college in two ways. The annual certification process attests not only to a year’s worth of internal control activities and reviews at the college, but also to the acceptance of the college’s certification by SUNY System Administration, which is a significant component in continued flexibility for procurement operations at the entire campus.

This past year’s renewed focus on internal controls and the Internal Control Program has been an investment for many individuals, and Buffalo State is a stronger and better organization as a result. As a member of the Buffalo State College community, you are aware that internal controls are everyone’s responsibility. We look forward to the continued emphasis on good internal controls as an organization and value your efforts toward this end.

A copy of the campus submission is available on the Buffalo State Web site. At this time, staff in SUNY System Administration are reviewing campus submissions and preparing a SUNY-wide response for its report to New York State. We anticipate acceptance of our campus submission without issues of substance. I encourage your review of Buffalo State’s certification submission and welcome any questions you may have.
