Management Policies & Standards

Management Policies & Standards

In 1987, the New York State Governmental Accountability, Audit and Internal Control Act was adopted. The Act requires that all State agencies, including the State University, improve accountability and efficiency in the workplace through a formal program of internal controls. Under the provisions of the Act, System Administration is required to make available to all employees a statement of generally applicable management policies and standards.

System Administration's generally applicable management policies and standards are conveyed through, but not limited to:

Employees should be familiar with and follow these and other applicable policies, as well as the specific policies and procedures related to their job duties, which should be carried out in accordance with the highest ethical standards. Additional information can be found at the "plain language" version of the New York State Ethics Law, and a document entitled "Understanding Internal Controls."

Effective internal controls depend on a commitment from all employees, so thank you for making this important matter a priority.
