Internal Control

LMI knows some things always need a tight rein.


When working correctly, an internal control system minimizes surprises.

It provides a strong measure of assurance that financial information is reliable; it promotes compliance with laws and regulations; and it helps strike the important balance between safeguarding assets yet ensuring government’s mission objectives are met.

LMI helps organizations develop internal control systems that do the job they have been intended to do, while satisfying governmental requirements that have became more stringent on the heels of management abuses in private industry.

For our government civilian and military clients, we assess existing internal control systems, identify areas for improvement, and train staff on proper procedures and practices. For example, for the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Center for Internal Control and Risk Management, LMI has trained managers and employees in internal controls and risk management, and we developed a self-assessment tool based in part on the U.S. Government Accountability Office “Green Book,” the touchstone of internal control.

LMI’s internal control capabilities include the following:

  • Internal control guidance
  • Training
  • Development of internal control tools and workbook development
  • Assistance developing internal control plans and evaluations
  • Reviews and assessments of existing internal control systems.
