oversight

The Oklahoma Beef Council Board of Directors is a board of beef and dairy producer volunteers all who pay the Beef Checkoff.  To ensure the integrity of the Beef Checkoff in Oklahoma, we have taken the following steps:

    • Undergoes annual independent audits with a regional accounting firm
    • Institutes an Audit/Risk committee with an independent advisor to the committee with significant audit experience
    • Contracts with a third-party accounting firm with circulating accountants for all accounting services
    • Utilizes a five-step review process for monthly financials
    • Regularly review bank statements received from the bank against online bank statements
    • Empoys a director of compliance to provide oversight of beef checkoff collections.
