Tribal Government

OVERVIEW

Tribal leaders face many challenges on a daily basis to ensure that decisions maximize the economic benefits and well-being of the Tribe to promote its goals and objectives of improving quality of life for tribal members. In addition there are the challenges of keeping up with federal guidelines for tribal funds. The quality of the Tribe’s financial management system can present problems for tribal leaders. Inaccurate or untimely financial information can result in inappropriate political decisions, poor cash flow, and problems with federal funding agencies. Unfortunately, many Tribal leaders have lost positions for failing to monitor or understand the Tribe’s financial position.

The Tribal Accounting Solution™ is an integrated approach to assessing accounting and financial problems, evaluating operating systems and accounting packages, evaluating staff qualifications and training needs, and providing a plan and path for improved operational efficiency and financial reporting. The experts from JOSEPH EVE will assess the Tribe’s current financial management system, determine where the weaknesses or problems exist and offer a solution that may include:

  • Internal Control Development/Revisions
  • Chart of Accounts Revisions
  • Staffing Assessments
  • Custom Financial Reporting
  • Accounting Policies & Procedures
  • New Accounting Software
  • Staff Training
  • Monthly Accounting Services
  • Outsourced Accounting Services
The Tribal Audit Solution™ requires direct contact with and participation of the elected officials of the Tribal Government. We will request that elected officials, in addition to government employees, attend the entrance and exit conferences. Our experience has shown that elected Tribal officials often do not understand the entire audit process or hear the whole story when employee jobs may be on the line. Employees do not have the same vested interest as the elected officials of the Tribe. Actively involving elected Tribal officials in the audit process provides a mechanism to improve tribal operations, report up-to-date audit progress and relay requests for information. This also helps ensure on-time completion of the audit by holding us accountable as well as employees of the Tribal Government.
At the audit exit conference we will be honest in our description of the problems uncovered in the audit process. Often, audit findings can be brushed over or sugar coated and do not give Tribal officials a true picture of the problems that exist. Along with our honest assessment, we offer you solutions such as The Tribal Accounting Solution™, which will provide your employees with the tools and training needed to run a top-notch tribal financial management system.
In addition to auditing and accounting services, JOSEPH EVE provides Quality Assurance Reviews, Information Technology Planning and Implementation, Feasibility Studies, Compensation Studies, Policy and Procedure Manual Development, and Strategic Planning for tribal governments. Read about these services on our Tribal Consulting page. For information on our training services, visit the Seminars page.
The Audit Edge™ from JOSEPH EVE provides Government Leaders with the information they need to make informed decisions. This is accomplished through:

  • Mandatory Entrance Conferences
  • Customized Audit Programs & Checklists
  • Detailed Audit Planning
  • Advanced Auditing Tools
  • Honest Evaluation
  • Integrated Solutions

At JOSEPH EVE, we believe that audits should carefully evaluate financial practices and identify inefficiencies and any problem areas in order to strengthen the administrative practices of governments and organizations. Our “member of the management team” approach means that we work with you to provide solutions that can be effectively and efficiently implemented. We see it as our job to help you maximize your potential for success.
