Office of the State Auditor announces internal control audits of three state agencies


The Office of the State Auditor announced departmental audits for the Utah Labor Commission, the Utah Department of Commerce, and the Utah Department of Corrections.  All three audits focused on key internal controls within the agencies. 

The term “internal controls” describes the policies and processes to provide consistent and efficient operations, including reasonable assurance that public funds will be properly safeguarded.  Proper internal controls include separating certain responsibilities so that no one person has the ability to misappropriate public funds without detection, including separating the responsibilities for authorization of expenditures, custody of assets, financial record keeping, and financial reconciliation.

The reports may be found on the Office’s website at The specific audits may be found at:
