Overview:  Internal audit, the Corporate Controller’s office, and the Financial Officer organization have embarked on a joint initiative to implement a program to continuously monitor for high-risk transactions at the University.  This effort utilizes data analysis to identify transactions that may indicate possible fraud, waste, and non-compliance with University policies and other regulations; and therefore require further review.  We are using Caseware Monitor software to automate the data analysis and distribution of transactions identified to the responsible areas for review and/or remediation.  Descriptions of each analytic can be found below:
