The University of Colorado Boulder is a comprehensive research university, and we value ethical decision-making, behavior, integrity, transparency, and accountability. The Campus Controller's Office Compliance unit’s role within that framework is to develop, implement, and maintain an annual internal review plan that will identify areas of financial and operational risk. Our primary concern is with campus-wide internal controls that support reasonable levels of compliance. 

Areas of evaluation include, but are not limited to:

  • Adequacy of fiscal policies and procedures applicable to academic and research activities 
  • Propriety of financial transactions
  • Reasonableness of financial compliance
  • Diagnostics of financial trends, reconciliations, and various budget items and/or financial statement variances

We offer quality control reviews and propose solutions to mitigate risk as prioritized by the CU Boulder Campus Controller. We provide fiscal oversight of various financial reconciliations and high risk transactions (such as alcohol and After-the-Fact purchases). We serve as an internal control structure for the CU Boulder Campus, and work in collaborations with Internal Audit.
