Reminder: Code of Conduct Recertification is due by July 1st

The Code of Conduct is one of management’s most important tools for establishing a strong internal control environment.  The Code sets an appropriate "tone at the top" by outlining the standards and expectations regarding employee honesty, integrity, and ethical behavior, and by providing mechanisms for employees to report questionable or improper activities and behaviors. 

MMB Statewide Operating Policy 0103-01, Code of Conduct (and related procedures), requires each agency head and employees with applicable job responsibilities to recertify their understanding of their responsibilities under the Code and their commitment to abide by the Code’s policy provisions once each fiscal year.

For the certification form and additional Code of Conduct information/requirements please see http://www.beta.mmb.state.mn.us/code-conduct

Internal Controls Bulletins

Internal Controls Bulletins are authored by the Internal Control & Accountability Unit and published monthly. The intent is to provide Minnesota state government leaders and other interested parties with a quick read about specific internal control topics. Each bulletin also provides readers with suggestions and action steps for strengthening the internal controls within their organization.
