ManagementInformation Systems
A management information system (MIS) is a system or process that providesthe information necessary to manage an organization effectively. MIS and theinformation it generates are generally considered essential components ofprudent and reasonable business decisions.The importance of maintaining a consistent approach to the development,use, and review of MIS systems within the institution must be an ongoingconcern of both bank management and OCC examiners. MIS should have aclearly defined framework of guidelines, policies or practices, standards, andprocedures for the organization. These should be followed throughout theinstitution in the development, maintenance, and use of all MIS.MIS is viewed and used at many levels by management. It should besupportive of the institution's longer term strategic goals and objectives. Tothe other extreme it is also those everyday financial accounting systems thatare used to ensure basic control is maintained over financial recordkeepingactivities.Financial accounting systems and subsystems are just one type of institutionalMIS. Financial accounting systems are an important functional element or partof the total MIS structure. However, they are more narrowly focused on theinternal balancing of an institution's books to the general ledger and otherfinancial accounting subsystems. For example, accrual adjustments,reconciling and correcting entries used to reconcile the financial systems tothe general ledger are not always immediately entered into other MIS systems.Accordingly, although MIS and accounting reconcilement totals for relatedlistings and activities should be similar, they may not necessarily balance.An institution's MIS should be designed to achieve the following goals:Enhance communication among employees.Deliver complex material throughout the institution.Provide an objective system for recording and aggregating information.
