  • State Law and Regulations

    Section 7-7-3(6)(d) of the Mississippi Code states that each agency through its governing board or executive head is required to maintain continuous internal audit covering activities of such agency affecting its revenues and expenditures, and an adequate internal system of pre-auditing claims, demands and accounts will be paid.

    Section 30.10.10 of the Mississippi Department of Finance and Administration Agency Accounting Policies and Procedures Manual states that responsibility for implementing internal controls at each agency begins with the agency head and extends to everyone in the agency. Each agency head personally holds the leadership responsible for helping to design, implement, maintain, and champion an internal control program that encompasses all agency fiscal programs and related activities. The IHL Board holds each of its institutions' Chief Executive Officer and Financial Officer responsible for their institution's internal controls.
