The Office of Audit Services frequently offers training classes that address various cash and internal control issues. These are open to employees at the Texas Tech University System's campuses in Lubbock and are encouraged for employees in cash-handling departments.
Risk, Controls, and Cash
Participants will learn the "red flags" of fraud and how a well-designed control environment can provide reasonable assurance in preventing fraud while also assisting organizational departments in the achievement of their operational, financial and administrative objectives.
This class will help participants understand internal controls and how to effectively balance risks and controls. A portion of the class will address specific controls and institutional requirements related to cash handling including receipts processing, deposit preparation, and safeguarding of funds.
Who should attend?
This class is designed for employees with the responsibility of ensuring organizational goals are accomplished as well as employees involved in the processes of receipting or depositing funds. Administrators, managers, supervisors, cashiers, and clerks are highly encouraged to attend.
Texas Tech University employees can enroll in classes at IAC 101.
Angelo State University employees can enroll in classes at Training and Development.
Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center employees can enroll in classes at Training and Staff Development.
