Office of Management and Budget : OMB [wikipedia]


The Mission and Structure of the Office of Management and Budget

Budget development and execution, a significant government-wide process managed from the Executive Office of the President and a mechanism by which a President implements decisions, policies, priorities, and actions in all areas (from economic recovery to health care to energy policy to national security);
  2. Management — oversight of agency performance, Federal procurement, financial management, and information/IT (including paperwork reduction, privacy, and security);
  3. Coordination and review of all significant Federal regulations by executive agencies, to reflect Presidential priorities and to ensure that economic and other impacts are assessed as part of regulatory decision-making, along with review and assessment of information collection requests;
  4. Legislative clearance and coordination (review and clearance of all agency communications with Congress, including testimony and draft bills) to ensure consistency of agency legislative views and proposals with Presidential policy; and
  5. Executive Orders and Presidential Memoranda to agency heads and officials, the mechanisms by which the President directs specific government-wide actions by Executive Branch officials.

 ・[PDF] OMB Circular No. A-123


Purpose: This Circular defines management’s responsibilities for enterprise risk management (ERM) and internal control. The Circular provides updated implementation guidance to Federal managers to improve accountability and effectiveness of Federal programs as well as mission support operations through implementation of ERM practices and by establishing, maintaining, and assessing internal control effectiveness. The Circular emphasizes the need to integrate and coordinate risk management and strong and effective internal control into existing business activities and as an integral part of managing an Agency.


Requirements: Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-123 requires agencies to integrate risk management and internal control functions. The Circular also establishes an assessment process based on the Government Accountability Office’s (GAO) Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government (known as the Green Book) that management must implement in order to properly assess and improve internal controls over operations, reporting, and compliance. The primary compliance indicators that management must consider when implementing OMB Circular No. A-123, include:  

  • Management is responsible for the establishment of a governance structure to effectively implement, direct and oversee implementation of the Circular and all the provisions of a robust process of risk management and internal control.

  • Implementation of the Circular should leverage existing offices or functions within the organization that currently monitor risks and the effectiveness of the organization’s internal control.

  • Agencies should develop a maturity model approach1 to the adoption of an ERM framework. For FY 2016, Agencies are encouraged to develop an approach to implement ERM. For FY 2017 and thereafter Agencies must continuously build risk identification capabilities into the framework to identify new or emerging risks, and/or changes in existing risks (See Section II.C. for additional details).

  • Management must evaluate the effectiveness of internal controls annually using GAO’s Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government. (The Green Book) Throughout the Circular, the terms “Must” and “Will” denote a requirement that management will comply with in all cases. “Should,” indicates a presumptively mandatory requirement except in circumstances where the requirement is not relevant for the Agency. “May” or “Could,” indicate best practices that may be adopted at the discretion of management.
