Internal Control

Internal Controls are a critical piece of every organizations operation. Designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the achievement of objectives, internal controls are the “checks and balances” put in place by an entity’s board of directors, management and other personnel. These “checks and balances” are incorporated into daily tasks and if properly designed and operating effectively, provide the board of directors and management reasonable assurance that the organization is operating efficiently and effectively, financial reports are reliable and the organization has complied with applicable laws and regulations.

This page is dedicated to the promotion of internal controls within Solano County.  The links below will provide a resource for management and other personnel in achieving their responsibility for designing and operating a strong system of controls.
