Text: June 29, 1998 Members of the Legislative Audit Committee: Southwest Texas State University, Texas A&M University - Commerce, and Texas A&M University - Galveston continue to make necessary enhancements to their control systems and overall operations, as recommended in previous audit reports. These changes will reduce the risk of wasting resources and failing to achieve goals and objectives. To determine current management control issues at Texas A&M University - Galveston, we reviewed internal audit reports for fiscal years 1996, 1997, and 1998. Texas A&M University Galveston management needs to continue the high-level of commitment to action plans, as demonstrated by (1) its initiation of a strategic planning process with a committee reviewing all non-academic services and (2) its increased promotion of student recruitment efforts. Texas A&M University - Galveston has been under reorganization in recent years and has made progress towards improving management goals in certain problem areas identified in the internal audit reports. Administrative control for its financial and accounting operations was transferred to the Vice President for Finance and Controller of Texas A&M University - College Station. A new Vice President and Chief Executive Officer was appointed for Texas A&M University Galveston. Progress towards improving management controls in certain problem areas, such as auxiliary enterprises and enrollment has taken place. Texas A&M University - Galveston continues to make the management control improvements recommended in the internal audit reports. The internal audit departments of both Texas A&M University - College Station and the Texas A&M University System continue to be involved in projects at Texas A&M University - Galveston. Based on this information, no further State Auditor activity is necessary at this time in order to allow the university time to implement planned improvements. Report No. 98-048
