Report on Alberta's Post-secondary Institutions
About this Report
This report includes an update on the post-secondary institutions’ report card on internal controls over financial reporting, together with comparative assessments from our 2017 and 2016 audits of colleges, technical institutes, MacEwan University and Mount Royal University. Our November 2018 report included the results of our audits at Athabasca University, the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary and the University of Lethbridge.
We issued one new recommendation to the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology to improve its network user-access control. We found the institute did not consistently remove network access for terminated employees abruptly. Failure to remove terminated employee access increases the risk to the institute of unauthorized access to its systems.
