Business Process Compliance Program

Passage of N.C.G.S. Chapter 143D (State Governmental Accountability and Internal Control Act) required all state entities to establish comprehensive standards, policies, and procedures to ensure a strong and effective system of internal control. The Office of the State Controller developed the EAGLE program (Enhancing Accountability in Government through Leadership and Education) in response to the passage of this legislation. By request of the University, the State Controller allowed the University’s Business Process Compliance Program to meet the goals of EAGLE.  While management at each institution is responsible establishing systems of internal controls, compliance with the legislation is also achieved through various efforts managed by the Office of Compliance and Audit Services at the System Office including training, written standards and guidance, key performance indicator monitoring, and review of comprehensive self-assessments.

NCGS 126-84 encourages employees to report evidence of activities that include but are not limited to a violation of law; fraud; gross misuse or mismanagement of monies; or abuse of authority. UNC System Office finance policies and procedures provide further guidance on reporting and investigating the misuses of state property, including what employees are required to report and the steps that should be taken. 

When sharing concerns or suspected unethical activity with internal audit, please provide as much detail as possible about who, what, when, where, how and how much/how often.
