Quality Control Review of Single Audit on the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA)
On January 4, 2012, we issued a quality control report on a single audit performed by Cherry, Bekaert & Holland, LLP, on the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority's (MARTA) use of U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) grants for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2010. During this period, MARTA expended approximately $131million from DOT grant programs. The major programs tested by Cherry, Bekaert & Holland, LLP included the Federal Transit Cluster and Clean Fuel Bus Project Grants. We determined the work of Cherry, Bekaert & Holland, LLP to be acceptable with deficiencies and therefore it generally met the requirements of generally accepted Government auditing standards, the Act, and OMB Circular A-133. We found nothing to indicate that Cherry, Bekaert & Holland, LLP s opinion MARTA's financial statements or reports on MARTA's internal controls and compliance were inappropriate or unreliable.
