Federal Manager's Financial Integrity Act
The Federal Managers' Financial Integrity Act (FMFIA) of 1982 requires agency heads to provide an annual assurance statement on whether internal control and financial systems provide reasonable assurance that the integrity of Federal programs and operations is protected. [n response. the Department of Energy (Department) developed a program for evaluating the adequacy of its internal controls and determining whether they conform to the principles and standards established by the Office of Management and Budget and the Government Accountability Office. The results of these evaluations and other information provided by senior management are used to determine whether there are any material weaknesses.
