Featuring 848 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Working Capital improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 848 standard requirements:
- Is a cash disbursement journal prepared monthly that details the date of check, check number, payee, amount of check, and columnar description of expense account (and restricted fund) to be charged?
- Does the core financial system provide the capability to allocate working capital and revolving fund costs across organization and program lines and generate appropriate journal entries?
- In what ways is the cash flow table used to organize the data for permanent working capital asset decisions similar to and different from the cash flow table used in capital budgeting?
- Assume you were given information regarding current ratios for three consecutive years. Can you determine the general condition of liquidity without calculating working capital?
- Are advance payments to vendors and/or employees recorded as receivables and controlled in a manner which assures that they will be offset against invoices or expense vouchers?
- To support the revolving fund function, does the core financial system provide the capability to use cost management in revolving funds, including working capital programs?
- Assume that sales double, the firm operates with positive working capital position and the commitments from current creditors do not increase. What scenario do you foresee?
- Are invoices from unfamiliar or unusual vendors reviewed and approved for payment by authorized personnel who are independent of the invoice processing function?
- If goods are received into stock today, on average how long does it take before those goods are sold and the cash received and profit realised from that sale?
- A good cash budgeting and forecasting system provides answers to key questions such as: Is the cash level adequate to meet current expenses as they come due?

Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
