New Audit Announcements
Audit Initiated of the DOT's Enterprise Services Center
The Department of Transportation is a Federal shared services provider, offering a wide range of business services to its Operating Administrations and other Federal entities. As such, it is required by the Office of Management and Budget to provide client agencies with an independent audit report describing its internal controls in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16. Auditors will use the results of this review in their Fiscal Year 2011 financial statement audits for DOT and its client agencies. This audit is being carried out by Clifton Gunderson, LLP, an independent audit firm, subject to OIG oversight. Audit objectives are to determine whether: (1) management's description of the service organization's systems are fairly presented; (2) controls are suitably designed; and (3) controls are operating effectively throughout the period of October 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011.
