Audit procedures for new electronic welfare assistance form

Postby mtolman5989 » Mon Apr 10, 2017 4:33 am

Can anyone provide an updated procedure for the audits when we are asked about the new online welfare food order system ? We have been using the system for several months and it is ABSOLUTELY fantastic. However, in a financial training meeting for our region last night, the regional audit director instructed us that once the form/order is fulfilled by the storehouse and they update the info online, we must PRINT the electoronic form and have the Bishop sign it as proof of the crosscheck, in order to pass the audit. Surely that can't be the correct procedure. If so, what is the purpose of going all electronic ? The Bishop can see ans review the original order and the filled order quantities online.

Follow the guidance of the regional audit directory. Sometimes moving to paperless systems require the use of different paper forms than were used previously. When they are ready to make everything 100% electronic they will let you know.

Yup, 20 years ago they said we (the world) are going into "the paperless society". Oh, well.

That audit question is no longer a part of ward or branch audits. Going paperless eliminates the need for the question.

Waltbristow is correct. I serve as an area auditor in the United States. The question regarding the bishop's storehouse has been eliminated in areas that are using the electronic system. The assistant area auditor was misinformed.
