Internal Controls in the Cloud

Federal agencies have embraced the cloud’s ability to do more with less, faster and more efficiently. With the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMPSM) to address security of federal cloud offerings, agencies can feel confident that their data is secure.

CGI’s Momentum®, in partnership with Infor™ Approva Continuous Monitoring and Internal Controls, can provide agencies with strengthened internal controls for their financial management system in our FedRAMP authorized cloud. Approva works with Momentum to strengthen federal agencies’ efforts to automate controls monitoring and implement continuous audit processes across their financial management and legacy systems.

Relieving your monitoring burden

Infor Approva is dedicated to promoting transparency, efficiency and accountability. Approva is equipped with cross-platform, cross-application, cross-instance operations for strengthening automated controls monitoring, but functions as an independent platform, delivering true third-party analysis and testing of enterprise resource planning controls across multiple applications. Designed with federal compliance in mind, the result of the Momentum-Approva integration include the following federal capabilities:

  • Full compliance: ability to address and automate internal control requirements including the Federal Managers’ Financial Integrity Act, Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act (IPERA), the Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness Program (FIAR)
  • Management insight: automated monitoring of user activity and sensitive transactions with alerts to federal management teams when violations occur
  • Streamlined audit preparation: documenting all remediation activities to satisfy regulatory, security, and audit requirements, violations uncovered, and remediation actions
