Management is responsible for preparing financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In taking responsibility for the preparation of financial statements, management both implicitly and explicitly asserts that the financial statements:

  • contain information on transactions that actually occurred
  • that the amounts fairly represent the realizable values of assets or amounts of obligations owed, and
  • that the transactions were reported in the proper accounting period.

Management is also responsible for assessing risk across the enterprise and maintaining an adequate system of internal controls to manage risk and ensure accurate financial reporting, including the safeguarding of assets against unauthorized use, disposition or acquisition.

Internal control risk assessment systems, or frameworks, are guided by concepts developed to provide a level of assurance that the controls established will prevent or detect errors or fraud that would cause the financial statements to be misstated and therefore not providing reliable, accurate and complete information.

The regulatory requirements for banks over $500 million and those over $1 billion in assets and the common areas of oversight that should be the focus on management, the Board of Directors, and members of the internal audit team.
