Quality Control Review of Single Audit on the Port Authority of Allegheny County
On July 21, we issued a quality control review report on a single audit performed by Maher Duessel, CPAs on the Port Authority of Allegheny County (Authority) use of United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) grants for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2009. During this period, the Authority expended about $115 million of grants from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and from Federal Railroad Administration. Maher Duessel rendered an unqualified (clean) opinion on the Authority's financial statements and identified no internal control or compliance deficiencies. We determined that Maher Duessel's work generally met the requirements of generally accepted government auditing standards, the Single Audit Act of 1984, as amended, and the Office of Management and Budget Circular A–133. We found nothing to indicate that Maher Duessel's opinion on the financial statements or reports on internal control and compliance were inappropriate or unreliable.
