Assessing the Control Environment in MAS
 
 
The Internal Audit Department (IAD) is an independent function that reports directly to the Audit Committee (AC). With approval of the AC, IAD conducted an extensive programme of risk-based audits during the year. These covered MAS’ core functions including reserve and monetary policy management, currency and corporate resource management. For Financial Year 2003/04, the system of internal controls of the area covered by IAD was assessed to be satisfactory. Management also took efforts to implement mitigating measures to address audit concerns and enhance the internal processes.

IAD facilitated the implementation of a risk management framework to identify and manage risks across MAS. To raise awareness and foster a strong anti-fraud culture in MAS, IAD also led in formulating an anti-fraud policy.
