New York State Governmental Accountability,
Audit & Internal Control Act

(as posted on Comptroller's website)

In 1987, the Legislature enacted a law entitled New York State Governmental  Accountability, Audit and Internal Control Act of 1987. This act highlighted the need for  agency management to promote good internal controls and accountability in government.  The Legislature, recognizing the importance of internal control, updated and made the  Act permanent effective January 1, 1999 in Chapter 510 of the Laws of 1999. 

The internal control responsibilities of the various branches of government are codified as follows: 

State Agencies in Article 45 of the Executive Law, 
State Legislature in Article 6 of  the Legislative Law, 
Judiciary in Article 7­D of the Judiciary Law, 
Public Authorities in Article 9 of the Public Authorities Law. 

The updated laws refined the concepts in the 1987 law to assure that the Act’s provisions were consistent 
with current  professional internal control standards and the practices of private and public organizations.
