Enterprise Risk Management
Clayton State University operates with integrity and the highest ethical standards. Our policies and procedures provide governance necessary to ensure business controls and internal procedures to assure compliance and minimize risks. Our Statement of Vision, Mission and Values is found online. University System Audit Staff and the Georgia Department of Audits periodically review our operations. Corrective actions are taken when exceptions to these practices are identified.
In 2009, Clayton State implemented the Statement of Accounting Standard 112 Controls and Risks assessment processes (SAS). Internal Control and Risks Assessment documentation was developed for Budget and Finance, Auxiliary Services, Housing, Financial Aid, Asset Management and Continuing Education.
In 2011, USG Board of Regents implemented a policy on Risk Management (Regents Policy 7.11) This BOR policy requires every USG institution and the System Office to have a structure and process for identifying and managing risks.
ERM Coordinator Role
The Board of Regents Policy Manual further specifies that each USG institution must have a Risk Management Policy coordinator charged with oversight of implementing the System’s risk management policy. (Policy 7.11.3)
The coordinator will assist campus administrators in maintaining the institutional risk management framework and procedures. The coordinator is expected to have sufficient authority to ensure high-level management of the institution’s risk management efforts. The coordinator is not expected to develop and manage the risk-management initiative alone, but rather he or she will be responsible for ensuring that all the key players on campus are engaged and that the overall process of policy implementation is moving forward.
