(30 ILCS 10/2001)
(from Ch. 15, par. 2001)
Program of internal auditing.
(a) Each designated State agency as defined in Section 1003(a) shall maintain a
full-time program of
internal auditing. In the event that a designated State agency is merged, abolished, reorganized, or renamed, the successor State agency shall also be a designated State agency.
(a-5) Within 30 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly, each chief internal auditor transferred under Executive Order 2003-10 to the Department of Central Management Services shall be transferred to the auditor's designated State agency, and if an auditor does not have a designated State agency or has more than one designated State agency, then the chief executive officer of a State agency shall appoint such person as the chief internal auditor of a State agency. A chief internal auditor transferred under this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly shall be appointed to a 5-year term beginning on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly.
The rights of employees and of the State and its agencies under the Personnel Code and applicable collective bargaining agreements or under any pension retirement or annuity plan shall not be affected by this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly.
All books, records, papers, documents, property (real and personal), unexpended appropriations, and pending business pertaining to the functions transferred by this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly shall be delivered to the respective State agency pursuant to the direction of the chief executive officer of that State agency.
(b) The chief executive officer of a State agency is not relieved from
the responsibility for
maintaining an effective internal control system merely because that State
agency is not designated and required to have a full-time program of
internal auditing under this Act. Agencies which do not have full-time
internal audit programs may have internal audits performed by the
Department of Central Management Services.
(c) The Supreme Court will establish by its rulemaking authority or by
administrative order a full-time program of internal auditing of
State-funded activities of the judicial branch, which is consistent with
the intent of this Article.
