New Audit Announcements
Audit Initiated of the DOT's Enterprise Services Center
The Department of Transportation (DOT) is a Federal shared services provider, offering a wide range of business services to its operating administrations and other Federal entities through its Enterprise Services Center (ESC). The Office of Management and Budget requires DOT, as a shared services provider, to provide its client agencies with an independent service auditor’s report in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16. DOT’s and its client agencies’ auditors will use the results of this review in their fiscal year 2014’s financial statement audits. KPMG, LLP, an independent audit firm, will perform this engagement, subject to OIG’s oversight, and determine whether: (1) management’s description of ESC’s systems is fairly presented; (2) ESC’s controls are suitably designed; (3) ESC’s controls effectively operate throughout the period of October 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014.
