TO: The Campus Community
FROM: Deborah F. Stanley, President
In recent years, Oswego State has embraced new statements of mission, vision, values, and goals. Our core values as a college community reflect and guide the way we do business on a daily basis. They include respect for one another and those whom we serve; honesty, integrity, and the pursuit of excellence in all that we do.
As an agency of New York State, Oswego State is obligated to fulfill the requirements of the New York State Governmental Accountability, Audit and Internal Control Act of 1987. This legislation requires the establishment, in each state agency, of a system of internal controls designed to ensure that we are operating as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Being good stewards of the resources entrusted to us, and modeling ethical behavior while meeting our job requirements, are ways that we put these core values into practice every day. Establishing and then following good systems of internal control are a means by which we incorporate these values into the fabric of our departments and offices.
Although we are each responsible for establishing internal control in our units, the formal responsibility for reviewing campus controls and for providing information and training about them has been assigned to the Finance Office. You can expect to hear from Byron Smith or Mark Cole from time to time with updates on Oswego's program, and when your unit may be selected for review of its internal control systems.
To learn more about internal controls, please review the information on our website at: http://www.oswego.edu/administration/finance/internal_control/pptraining.html
In closing, I encourage each of you to cooperate fully with our campus internal control team. They are working very hard to help us enhance our systems of internal control and ensure that appropriate accountability is achieved.
