Georgia-Cumberland Conference of Seventh-day Adventists

Why Audit?

Auditing is not a matter of distrusting someone. There are several reasons why we audit the financial records of the local church/school. 
  1. To verify that the financial records of the local church/school are kept in accordance with the Conference Accounting Manual set by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, where applicable to the local church/school.
  2. To verify that incoming funds are properly received and recorded according to donors' designation. 
  3. To verify that outgoing funds are properly disbursed and recorded according to the policy set by the Conference and the local church/school board. 
  4. To find strengths and weaknesses in the financial records so that adequate training and advice can be given.
