Set policies and make sure they are followed

Have you set a policy which requires that management solicit three bids for work?  Is it being followed?  Do you require your financial statements to be prepared on an accrual basis?  Is management working hard to ensure that all liabilities are recorded?  While we all know that financial statements must be accurate and make sense, who reviews and approves the financial statements?  Setting policies and ensuring they work is an important step in your oversight of management and operations.

Use the budget to manage management

The budget is the most effective control tool available to your board, but it must be well-designed to use it to protect your assets.  Even then, you must be ready to hold management accountable to that budget.  Management should never decide to violate the budget without prior approval from the board.  


C.O.R.E. believes in using the budget to keep your association business operation under control.
