Information Systems: It’s Not All About the Technology, It’s About the Process

Presented by Eric Russell, CIA, CGAP, CGMS, MPA, Crowe LLP and
Emy Neuman-Javornik, CPA, CGMS, Emy Neuman PLLC


As the need for organizations to capture more real time data grows, the importance of internal controls over data accuracy and completeness expands.  Grants managers and financial managers are continuing to seek ways to leverage technology to assist with required reporting, grant accounting, data security, and workflow.  During this session, we will discuss the systems procurement, evaluation, and requirements gathering processes – including risks and benefits, integration, and automation.  We will also discuss approaches to monitor data quality to ensure information that your organization depends on is valid, complete, timely and accurate.   We will provide real life examples of how organizations in the grants community are progressively managing systems to meet organizational needs when it comes to grants management, reporting and compliance.
