Internal controls over all forms of commitment and expenditure continue to be developed in order to improve efficiency. Processes are in place to ensure that performance is monitored and that appropriate management information is reviewed by the Executive Board. The systems of internal controls are designed to provide reasonable but not total assurances against material management or loss. These include:
• a strategic plan – which includes an annual operating plan
and annual budget approved by the Executive Board
• regular analysis by the Executive Board of the results
and differences from budgets, delegation of day-to-day
management authority, including segregation of duties
• the identification and management of risks
The Executive Board is integral to the internal control processes.
