(2) Ensure information generated for financial reporting is properly tested and reviewed for accuracy.
(3) Identify sensitive positions and ensure background investigations are performed as part of the hiring process.
(4) Review capital asset policies and procedures to ensure a detailed, up-to-date capital asset listing is maintained.
(5) Ensure compliance with Iowa Department of Administrative Services Policy 240.102 for personal service contracts.
