What is FIAR?
Today:
- “I spent all of
my budget”
- “I got more
money to fund
additional
requirements”
- “My systems
track
spending
(obligations)
but lack an
audit trail”
Standard Processes:
efficient…consistent
approach…shorter learning
curve….customer is happy…the
auditor is happy
Internal Controls:
separation of duties…mitigate fraud,
waste and abuse…safeguard funds
Audit Trail:
know where the money is…decision
support….efficient use of funds….CC
happy
Tomorrow:
- “I spent my
budget on these
things and
could also fund
these
requirements”
- Documentation
to support my
obligations is
available and
the audit trail
exists
Compliant Systems:
Necessary to achieve standard
processes, internal controls and an
audit trail

A Four Wave Strategy for FIAR
Wave 3: (Target Q4 FY16)
Wave 1:
Focus on the flow of money from receipt
by HAF to distribution down to the
MAJCOMs


Includes all appropriations for the current
fiscal year

Asserted as audit ready Sep 2010

Accountability for the assets and
supplies

Air Force can account for all of the
assets/supplies that are reported in the
system of record for a particular enditem (e.g. aircraft in REMIS) and that the
entire universe of those items reside in
the system of record

Conduct inventories on a regular basis
AUDIT
READY
Wave 2: (Target Q1 FY14)

Life-cycle of funds (commit, obligate, spend)

Audit trail for all funds

Performed testing of the internal controls to
ensure minimal risk to misstatement

Tested and reconciled starting and ending
balances
Wave 4: (Target Q1 FY17)

Full financial statement audit, except for the
values of legacy assets (e.g. B-52 purchased in
1955)

Requires that the Air Force has the capability to
value new asset acquisitions
