Agency Risk Management and Internal Controls Standards

ARMICS is an initiative of the Department of Accounts (DOA) for all state agencies within the Commonwealth of Virginia. Simply stated, the primary purpose of ARMICS is to ensure fiscal accountability and safeguard the Commonwealth’s assets. This purpose is achieved through the implementation of an effective system of internal controls and "best-practices" that directly support the Commonwealth’s vision and long-term objectives.
