This training is focused on the current Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government as detailed in the GAO Green Book.


This 24 hour CPE course provides you with the tools to implement a compliance program that is consistent with the GAO Green Book. This compliance workshop is focused on the needs of the government entity that has to comply with the GAO Green Book. This program covers the Who - What - Why - Where - How to Control, the 17 principles presented, as well as the 52 attributes concerning compliance with the GAO Green Book.


Documentation is a necessary part of an effective internal control system under the GAO Green Book Standards and is required for the effective design, implementation, and operating effectiveness of the internal control system. To document an understanding of an entity's internal control, management may consider developing documents such as:

1. Policies and procedures manuals

2. Flowcharts

3. Narratives/Tables

4. Risk Control Matrices (RCM)

5. Project Management Office (PMO).

6. Control Self-Assessments

7. Mapping the key controls library to the 17 principles and 52 attributes

8. Gap Analysis.


This GAO Green Book internal control training course will provide each attendee with 24 CPE Event Hours (YB).
