Vision:  The IR office is designed to provide value-added examinations of documentation to providing an independent assessment on risk management, internal controls, or governance processes.  Reviews are conducted in accordance with Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards and AR 11-7, Army Internal Review Program.  IR office engagements seek to solve known or perceived problems, provide information in support of decision-making, or take advantage of opportunities to improve efficiency or effectiveness of processes.  

Mission:  The mission of IR office is to bring the organization in compliance with Circular A-123 and United States Government Accountability Office Standards of Internal Control in the Federal Government (known as the "Green Book"). Manager's Internal Control Program (Managers' Internal Control Program) was established by Public Law 97-255, the Federal Mangers' Financial Integrity Act of 1982 (FMFIA) and was enacted to ensure efficient and effective management of government resources to protect against fraud, waste, and abuse. It requires all federal agencies to establish management controls that provide reasonable assurance that: obligations and costs follow applicable laws; funds, property, and other assets are safeguarded against waste, loss, unauthorized use, or misappropriation; revenues and expenditures are properly recorded and accounted for; and programs are efficiently and effectively carried out according to applicable law and management policy. 

Internal Review Services:

Stakeholders might need to submit service requests for the following:  

A) Reviews. IR office provides two types of reviews, including financial, performance, compliance, and cost analysis.

  • Formal Reviews (FRs).  Reviews scheduled on the annual plan.
  • Special Reviews (SRs).  Unprogrammed reviews that focus on performance in a very limited area and may be time sensitive.

B) RISK MANAGEMENT.  Leaders at all levels have a statutory and regulatory responsibility to establish and maintain effective internal management controls.  Within the corporate structure, the internal auditor is considered the in-house internal control expert, assisting with the assessment of risks and the design and implementation of internal controls to mitigate risks, to include performing tests of these controls.  IRAC fulfills this same important role for the Command’s leaders at all levels.  Resource stewardship, within the Command, is all about risk management.  Examples of risk management are:

  • Proposed Management Actions - A comparison or contrast of a new or proposed change to existing policies and procedures to identify potential strengths or weaknesses, e.g., consolidation of operational functions.
  • Cost Analysis - Providing cost analysis services such as in-house cost versus commercial sources, validating anticipated savings for various programs, and commenting on lease or buy options.

C) CONSULTING AND ADVISORY SERVICES (C&A).  These services are advisory and related client service activities; the nature and scope of these services are agreed upon with the client.  They are intended to add value and improve an organization’s operations.  Examples include Managers’ Internal Control Program (MICP) Training, Army Audit Readiness, process design, and advice on managerial decision packages.

D) EXTERNAL AUDIT LIAISON (AL).  These services facilitate audits performed by external audit organizations, such as the Government Accounting Office, DoD Inspector General, and U.S. Army Audit Agency.  The audit liaison can expedite the external audit process by coordinating meetings and conferences, assisting external auditors in getting to the proper officials, facilitating, and staffing replies to audit findings and recommendations, mediating disagreements between external auditors and the Command, and validating projected monetary savings claimed by external auditors.

E) FOLLOW-UP (FU).  This service is not only a fundamental tenet of IRAC’s management control system, but also a statutory responsibility of both managers and IRAC personnel.  Follow-up provides leadership with reasonable assurance that corrective actions have been accomplished, that they have been taken in a timely manner, and that the actions have minimized known risks.
