Report Summary

Financial-Related Audit

Department of Finance

Information Warehouse Data Integrity As of May 2000

The Department of Finance has controls to ensure that information warehouse data is both accurate and complete. However, we identified several weaknesses that the department should address to improve its control structure.

Key Findings and Recommendations:

  • Some accounts with extremely powerful security clearances have inadequate password controls.
  • Several accounts with powerful security clearances were no longer needed.
  • Some information technology professionals may have more clearance than they need to fulfill their job duties.

Financial-Related Audit Reports address internal control weaknesses and noncompliance issues found during our audits of state departments and agencies. The scope of our work at the Department of Finance was limited to a review of information warehouse data integrity controls.
