Controls Over Information Systems (Follow-Up Report)

The New York City Financial Information Services Agency (FISA) maintains various financial information systems for New York City, such as its centralized accounting and budgeting system, payroll system, pension system, and personnel system. In audit 2007-N-12, we examined selected aspects of the security controls in place over these information systems and found that certain improvements were needed in these controls. When we followed up on these matters with FISA officials, we found that some progress had been made in the implementation of our audit recommendations, but additional actions were still needed. Due to the sensitivity of the information, our detailed audit findings and recommendations were not included in either our original audit report or our follow-up report.
