Internal Control

Internal Control is the responsibility of all ABA employees. It is broadly defined as a process, effected by an entity's board of governors, management and other personnel, designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the achievement of objectives in the following categories; 1) Effectiveness and efficiency of operations; 2) Reliability of financial reporting; 3) Compliance with laws and regulations.



Internal auditors evaluate, examine, and monitor the adequacy and effectiveness of internal control systems and recommend improvements.
