Three good tips. In addition I would offer Segregation of Duties, in its many forms.

Don, yes–absolutely. That’s probably one of the best ideas! Thanks.

Armando, I like the surprise audit a great deal as well. Keeps everyone honest.

They, including Don’s suggested Segregation of Duties, are excellent tips. The one I like best is the surprise audits.
