*      The process of segmentation identifies program and administrative functions necessary for the College to carry out its mission.  Functions identified through this process are called “assessable units” and provide the framework for the implementation of the College’s Internal Control Program.  Through the use of “vulnerability assessment” surveys the College monitors and evaluates its susceptibility to conscious or unintended abuses and reduced operational efficiencies.
