Internal Financial Reporting

Internal Financial Reporting Survey

In July 2004, NACUBO surveyed controllers at member institutions in order to assess current industry practices with regard to internal financial reporting. There were two main areas of focus:

  1. Interim Financial Statements - unaudited and somewhat similar in scope and format to audited financial statements
  2. Management Reports - generally both routine and ad hoc reporting on targeted areas of management interest

Results of the survey are now available.
