About (Balance Sheet Substantiation)

One of the key controls for ensuring the accuracy of Citi's P&L is through ensuring the accuracy of its Balance Sheet. The basis for ensuring this accuracy is through the process of substantiating the balances in the general ledger back to supporting documentation on monthly basis.
