The Green Book Seminar

A Practical Approach to The Green Book

The Green Book: Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government is the accepted standard for implementing and assessing a system of internal controls for organizations which are subject to U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) regulations. This standard has also proven to be a useful approach to internal controls in many organizations. The new GAO standard is effective beginning with fiscal year 2016 and the Federal Managers' Financial Integrity Act (FMFIA) reports covering that year.

This CPE seminar covers the principles-based Green Book approach to a system of internal controls which uses COSO 2013 framework as its basis. COSO 2013 defines internal controls as being within five components and seventeen principles. The education process covers the interrelationships presented within the COSO 2013 framework and how to approach the classification of controls within the framework. The Green Book, however, has a different focuses for compliance in line within the governmental environment.

This eight-hour CPE course provides you with a more in-depth look at how to implement controls that are consistent with The Green Book. It covers the Who - What - Why - Where - How to Control. We look at the principles-based approach presented in The Green Book.

This CPE seminar is for business professionals. Attendees are not required to have a detailed knowledge of operations, risks, controls, auditing, compliance or The Green Book. However, by the end of the class, you will absorb an understanding of these areas, as well as how to apply the updated Green Book controls and principles to your governmental organization and your Yellow Book audits.

Corporate Compliance Seminars has been involved in the design, implementation and assessment of internal controls for over 20 years. We have conducted audits and trained thousands of auditors, compliance professionals, IT personnel, executives and Audit Committees in the "textbook" and real-world approaches to managing risk. Our CPE seminars are taught by auditors and business directors who understand the daily challenges of compliance.

Our seminars are as entertaining as they are informative. Sit back and enjoy; be engaged and educated in a casual atmosphere of information exchange. We will not bore you!

On September 10, 2014 GAO issued its revision of Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government. You can read the press release here. The 2014 revision will supersede GAO/AIMD-00-21.3.1, Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government: November 1999. This document is based on the COSO Internal Control - Integrated Framework 2013. GAO's 2014 revision will be effective beginning with fiscal year 2016 and the FMFIA reports covering that year. Management, at its discretion, may elect early adoption of the 2014 Green Book.

Federal Managers' Financial Integrity Act (FMFIA) requires that federal agency executives periodically review and annually report on the agency's internal control systems. FMFIA requires the Comptroller General to prescribe internal controls standards. These internal control standards, first issued in 1983, present the internal control standards for federal agencies for both program and financial management.

The Green Book may also be adopted by state, local, and quasi-governmental entities, as well as not-for-profit organizations, as a framework for an internal control system.
