Subject:
Sponsored Program Administration Audit Monitoring

In a recent audit of Grants and Contracts by the Office of the University Auditor, the system office was cited for issues related to compliance monitoring of federal, state, institutional, and other sponsor regulations and policies.  The auditors recommended greater centralized oversight in order to minimize the risk to the contract and grant programs at the campuses.

The enclosed ICSUAM policy has been developed with campus representatives to ensure there is sufficient audit monitoring and resolution for contracts and grants.  In the near future the policy will be integrated into the ICSUAM web page and could be found there electronically.

Questions regarding this policy may be directed to Sue DeRosa, Director of Sponsored Program Administration, at sderosa@calstate.edu or 562-951-4213.
