An entity’s MIS represents the aggregation of personnel, computer hardware and software, with associated policies and procedures, allowing data processing to generate utilizable information for decision-making. Pre-specified and routine decisions, which form the policies and procedures that are typically documented by an entity, are designed to provide time for managers to address non-routine activities and consider improvements to the currently deployed control processes through removal from the more mundane aspects of day-to-day operations. However, process monitoring is required to ensure: expected outcomes are achieved for assigned functional responsibilities and irregular activities are detected on a timely basis.
