eNews - April 2010

The President’s Letter

Thank you for continuing to make our monthly meetings successful.  Our March meeting was a joint meeting with The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).  The meetings covered a variety of fraud related topics.

Our April meeting will be held on April 1st at the Cityplace Conference Center.  We are lucky to have Harvey Rosenblum, the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas Vice President and Director of Research, with us as our lunch speaker.  His presentation is entitled “Like Wagner's Music, the Economy is Better than it Sounds”.  The pre-meeting will be “XBRL for Dummies”, presented by Debbie Mathews, CPA, CIA, Rent-A-Center Director of Internal Audit.  Chad Murphy, CISA, Deloitte Audit and Enterprise Risk Services Manager will present “Time Management” at the CAST meeting.  The post meeting will be “XBRL – What’s In It for the Internal Auditor”, presented by Mike Willis, CPA, Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Chairman of XBRL International.   I look forward to seeing all of you at the meeting.

The Board of Governors selected two members to receive awards during their March meeting.  The Vic DiMarco Distinguished Service Award, which recognizes outstanding service to the profession, was awarded to Denny Beran.  I am sure many of you know Denny as he has been a member of the Dallas Chapter since 1991. Denny has been with the JCPenney Company for 38 years and has been the Senior Vice President of Audit for the past 7 years.  Denny’s IIA highlights include serving on the Global Business Operations Task Force and as the Chairman of both the International Academic Relations Committee and the International Relations Committee.  He has also served as a Trustee on the Research Foundation for many years and on the Ethics Committee.  Currently, he is a member of the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors and is serving as the Vice Chairman of Professional Practices.  In his role, he has oversight responsibilities for the Audit Technology, Professional Issues, Quality, Advanced Technology Committees and the Internal Audit Standards Board.  He is also chairing the Value Proposition and Professionalism Task Force. Denny is the nominee for the Senior Vice Chairman on the Board for 2010-2011, which is the 2nd highest position amongst international officers.

The Aaron Saylors Distinguished Service Award, which recognizes outstanding service to the chapter, was awarded to Greg Estes.  I don’t think I have to say much about Greg because everyone knows who he is.  For years, he has been that guy that is making sure the meeting lines are running smoothly, that the projector is working as expected, that plenty of tables are set up to accommodate lunches….  As much as you have seen him do, he is doing much more behind the scenes to make sure the chapter runs smoothly.  Behind every great organization there are people like Greg and I want everyone to know how lucky we are to have him.  Greg joined the Texas Instruments Audit Department in 2004 and quickly got involved in the Chapter.  He has served in the roles of Registration Chair (for both the monthly meetings and the 2006 Smart Conference), Assistant Treasurer, Meeting Arrangements Chair, and Programs Committee Co-Chair.  Greg is currently serving as the Secretary of the Dallas chapter and has been nominated for the Treasurer position for 2010 – 2011.

Thank you for continuing to work with me to make the Dallas Chapter of the IIA a success in 2010.

Objectives: Economic data points to a mild firming of the underlying pace of economic recovery.  Through this presentation, we will discuss the indicators of economic recovery and the current state of our economic environment.

What are the indicators of this economic recovery?

  • Manufacturing, services and industrial production are all expanding, and consumer spending is rising, although concentrated on energy and luxury purchases by the upper quartile.
  • The job market is still awful but is poised to turn in the coming months.
  • The housing market remains vulnerable and consumer confidence remains low.

Harvey Rosenblum is Executive Vice President and Director of Research at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. In this capacity, he serves as economic policy advisor to the Bank's president and as an Associate Economist for the Federal Open Market Committee, which formulates the nation's monetary policy.

Past presidents of NABE include several Federal Reserve presidents as well as former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan. Rosenblum is currently serving as Executive Director of the North American Economics and Finance Association. He also is a member of the Product Development and Small Business Incubator Board, appointed by the governor of Texas.

A widely recognized expert on both the national and Texas economies, Rosenblum has written articles for such publications as The Journal of Finance, New York Times, Southwest Economy and The Handbook of Banking Strategy.

Active in economic education, Rosenblum is a visiting professor of finance at Southern Methodist University, teaching courses in contemporary issues on monetary policy and financial institutions and markets. Rosenblum received a B.A. in economics from the University of Connecticut in 1965 and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1972.  He began his career with the Federal Reserve in 1970 as an Economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, advancing through the ranks to Vice President and Associate Director of Research in 1983. He was also a visiting Professor of Finance with DePaul University from 1973 until 1985. He joined the Dallas Federal Reserve as Senior Vice President and Director of Research in 1985 and was promoted to Executive Vice President in 2005.  His current research interests focus on monetary policy, inflation and the growing impact of globalization on the U.S. economy and businesses.

XBRL: What's in it for Internal Auditors?
Mike Willis, Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers; Chairman, XBRL International

Objectives:  Have you heard any of the following to make you believe that XBRL is not relevant to you?

  • "XBRL is just for public companies…"

  • “XBRL is just for external reporting and is not relevant to internal systems…"

Participants in this session will learn: What is the relevance of XBRL for internal auditors?  What are the related short term risks and opportunities that auditors are focusing on?  How is XBRL helping internal auditors cost effectively address a wide range of common process problems?  This interactive discussion will address these topics and other specific participant questions.  During this session we discuss:

New Online Registration Requirements

A few months ago, the Dallas Chapter made a change to the CPE process.  After attending an IIA meeting, an online evaluation is distributed via email.  When you click the link to the online evaluation, you can immediately prepare and print your CE certificate for that specific meeting.  We had an overwhelming positive response to this process improvement, and want to keep making improvements such as this to streamline our processes.

The Dallas Chapter now requires payment prior to confirming your registration.  Almost 90% of our attendees already pay through PayPal, so this is not a change for them.  If you need to pay by check, your check must be received prior to the meeting (see details below).  Our goal is to reduce the wait time at the check in tables, improve controls, and ease the reconciliation process on the back end.

As a friendly reminder and to provide clarification for our new members:

  • Registration cutoff is 5:00 pm CST on the Friday before the meeting (unless otherwise noted).
  • Payment must be received by the Friday before the meeting (unless otherwise noted).  Your registration is not confirmed until paid.  We strongly encourage you to pay via PayPal to confirm your registration.  If you are mailing a check, the envelope must be post marked 8 days prior to the meeting (i.e., on Wednesday the week prior to the Thursday meeting) to ensure we receive your payment on time.  If the envelope is not post marked within the required timeframe and is received late, you will be notified by email that a) the meeting is sold out or b) an additional $10 late fee per person will be assessed.  Only registrations paid by PayPal will be accepted on Thursday and Friday prior to the meeting.
  • If you miss the deadline to register and space is available, you can attend the meeting as a walk-in.  Before coming to the meeting, please check the website to see if we are accepting walk-ins since our meetings tend to sell out.
  • The deadline to cancel your registration is 5:00 pm CST on the Friday before the meeting (unless otherwise noted) to receive a refund.  If you do not cancel by the deadline, you may send a substitute in your place after notifying reservations@dallasiia.org.  The substitute will be required to pay an additional $10 if they are not a member of the Dallas Chapter.
  • All walk-ins will need to register at a separate table before the start of the meeting.  The walk-ins will be required to complete an on-site registration form which will include name, company name, address, and email address and can pay with cash or check made payable to the Dallas Chapter of The IIA for the applicable amount.

Registration: Place and confirm your reservation via the web site at http://www.dallasiia.org/Reserve_0410.htm.

Next Steps!

Thank you all for supporting the annual Fraud Conference, which gets better every year.  For the first time ever, three Fraud workshops were held prior to the conference.  All Fraud Summit attendees will receive a copy of the book “HealthSouth: Wagon to Disaster” by Aaron Beam, one of our keynote note speakers.  The other keynote speaker was Robert Sheffield of the U.S. Secret Service, who spoke on the topic of current trends in cybercrime and financial fraud.  Next year’s Fraud Conference is already set as March 25, 2011 with workshops planned for March 24, 2011, so make sure to register early.

As many of you know this one day event has been a signature event of the program and is the event that provides for the continued funding of the program along with the growth of the program through marketing efforts.  We continue to receive calls for entry level students in internal audit with audit groups looking for primarily interns.  Many students are looking for internships to get their careers started and see which employers best fits the culture they are looking for.  We still have difficulty in marketing the program to other students and getting the word out about internal audit.  Large events such as the Fraud Conference helps in having others see the significance of internal audit and the interest in internal audit.

If you are interested in recruiting on campus or assisting the program in any way, please contact Mark Salamasick at 972-883-4729 or mark.salamasick@utdallas.edu.  We are always looking for additional site tours and always welcome sponsors for our Wednesday receptions.  There are a number of students still available for full time and internship opportunities, and a website is available with student resumes at www.utdallas.edu/orgs/iia. Contact Mark Salamasick for password access to the resumes.

IIA Research Foundation

The Research Foundation has recently issued a book entitled Internal Audit Capability Model (IA-CM) for the Public Sector.  It is a framework that identifies the fundamentals needed for effective internal auditing in government and the broader public sector.  It illustrates the levels and stages through which an internal audit (IA) activity can evolve as it defines, implements, measures, controls, and improves its processes and practices.

The model is intended for self-assessment, capacity building, and advocacy.  Its primary users are expected to be internal audit professionals together with the profession’s principal stakeholders (e.g., senior management, audit committee members, governing bodies, and external auditors).

This research report comprises two sections — an Overview of the IA-CM and an Application Guide.

  • The Overview provides background on the research project itself, some environmental and contextual information about internal auditing, and a description of the model, including its underlying principles and structure.  A selected bibliography is also provided.
  • The Application Guide describes the IA-CM in detail — its elements, levels, key process areas, and how to use and interpret the model.  Some evolving and best-practice examples of IA activities identified during the global validation of the IA-CM are highlighted along with guidance to help use the IA-CM as a self-assessment tool.

The model is not intended to be prescriptive in terms of how a process should be carried out, but rather what should be done.  It is intended as a universal model with comparability around principles, practices, and processes that can be applied globally to improve the effectiveness of internal auditing.

 The book can be ordered online at http://www.theiia.org/bookstore/product/internal-audit-capability-model-iacm-for-the-public-sector-1422.cfm..  (Item number 5007, IIA member price - $40, non member price - $60)

Report Your Speaking and Writing

It's time again for the survey to determine which IIA Dallas Chapter members have submitted articles or spoken since February 1, 2010. Each speaking engagement on internal auditing that a Dallas Chapter member completes will earn the Chapter 1 credit per CPD hour. Each full article, Roundtable article, Fraud Finding, etc. submitted that meets basic editorial guidelines will earn 5 credits. For each full article published 20 credits are earned. Each internal audit related article published in any other trade or professional journal that is authored by a chapter member is 5 credits.

To report your writing and speaking go to http://dallasiia.org/Speaking.htm and complete the provided form by March 28, 2010.


The IIA’s 2010 International Conference is being held in Atlanta Georgia, June 6 – 9.  The Institute of Internal Auditors International Conference is recognized as the premier global event for internal auditors to gather, network, and exchange information on the practice of internal auditing.  In addition to the 11 program tracks, the conference features two Virtual Tracks; one for Chief Audit Executives and the other for Financial Services Auditors.  Registration fees are scheduled to increase on April 1 so members should take advantage of early registration savings.  For more information please go to the conference website:  http://www.iia2010atl.org/.
