Controls In Writing
“If it’s not written down, it doesn’t exist.”

and implementing internal controls. In today’s paperless,
wireless, digital business environment, there are even more
compelling reasons for documenting not only how controls are
designed to work, but also evidence that controls are being
implemented and are functioning effectively.
