1. Review and approve Evaluation of Compliance with Information Technology Requirements (1 TAC 202).

Manuel Alvarez discussed audit findings with commissioners noting that he agreed with audit findings. He attributes non-compliance issues to the impact of Data Center Consolidation. He noted that the agency's previous audit in 2007 and conducted prior to Data Center Consolidation, found the agency in substantial compliance. Commissioner McAfee asked for more detailed information that would pinpoint non-compliance issues. After further discussion, Commissioner McAfee moved to table acceptance of the report pending receipt of auditor's notes. Commissioner Waters seconded. Motion passed.

2. Review and approve Risk Assessment and Internal Audit Plan for 2009.

Edward Seidenberg presented the Risk Assessment and Internal Audit Plan for 2009. Commissioner McAfee requested a copy of the Post Payment Procurement Report from the Comptroller's Office. Commissioner McAfee moved to approve conditionally if the auditor adds fiscal controls to the FY2009 Audit Plan. Commissioner Waters seconded. Motion passed.

3. Review and approve Internal Audit Services Proposal for 2009.

Edward Seidenberg presented the Internal Audit Services Proposal for 2009 and requested approval. After discussion, committee members agreed to amend the plan to require the auditor to provide working papers as part of each report, and to include an audit of fiscal controls. Commissioner McAfee moved to approve the audit with the amendment. Commissioner Waters seconded. Motion passed.

There being no further business before the Audit Committee, Chairman Hernandez adjourned the meeting at 10:24 a.m.
