“There is a lack of segregation of duties as it is the payroll team which processes the amounts and the payroll manager who authorises payments.”
maam isn’t this statement contentious?
I mean isnt segregation of duties exactly about payroll team processing amounts and a final senior authority making payments?
The scenario also said ” If any changes are required, the payroll manager amends the records.” So the payroll manager in this case has “control” over both the expense per the records and the cash payment. The payroll manager can authorise the payroll – i.e. sign the payroll that it is correct – but the payment (e.g. bank transfer) should be authorised by someone else – again the finance director (or managing director) springs to mind.
