Supervisory Committee Annual Review (Financial Audit)

Generally accepted auditing procedures with emphasis on review of the general ledger (accounting), lending and internal controls. Two levels of the Supervisory Committee Annual Reviews (SCARs) are offered: Full-Scope (recommended) and Minimum Agreed-Upon Procedures. The Full Scope SCAR is more robust in the areas and content reviewed compared to the Minimum Agreed-Upon Procedures. Depending on the level of the SCAR, lending may include a review of consumer loans, business loans, mortgage lending, and credit cards. In a Full-Scope SCAR, every general ledger account with a balance will be reviewed and testing of income and expenses will be performed. A thorough internal control questionnaire is completed in a Full-Scope SCAR.

BSA/CIP/OFAC Compliance Review

Annual review of procedures and documentation relating to requirements of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), Customer Identification Programs (CIP) and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). BSA/CIP required every 12 to 18 months, commensurate with the credit union’s BSA/AML risk profile.  OFAC required every 12 to 18 months based on the credit union’s OFAC risk profile or known or perceived risks.

Internal Audit Program

The internal audit is designed to aid the Board of Directors and Supervisory/Audit Committee in performing their basic duties as volunteers. The Internal Audit provides an in-depth review of a credit union’s operations with customized contacts. The frequencies of visits (monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, etc.) are selected by the credit union, based on member services offered and the complexity of the operation. Twelve visits allow for more areas of the credit union to be reviewed for adherence to policies, regulations and compliance. Areas reviewed may include lending, operations, specific compliance, cash, accounting control, and internal controls. The thoroughness of the internal audit program depends on the frequency of visits. 

ACH Audit

This audit is required by the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) by December 31 of each year. Credit unions are required to conduct audits for compliance with the ACH rules according to Appendix Eight (Rule Compliance Audit Requirement). The purpose of the ACH Audit is to maintain the quality of ACH services and the satisfaction of participating financial institutions and their customers (members) by ensuring compliance.
