State Leadership Accountability Act (SLAA)

Government Code sections 13400 through 13407, known as the State Leadership Accountability Act (SLAA), was enacted to reduce the waste of resources and strengthen internal control.  SLAA requires each state agency to maintain effective systems of internal control, to evaluate and monitor the effectiveness of these controls on an ongoing basis, and to biennially report on the adequacy of the agency's systems of internal control.

Finance provides an overview of SLAA reporting requirements, and recommends Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government as a framework for effective systems of internal control.

SLAA requires biennial reports by the end of each odd numbered year.  The following chart is a comparison of the most commonly reported risks from the two most recent reporting periods.
