Quality Control Review of Single Audit on the Metropolitan Council of the Twin Cities Area
On March 1, 2012, we issued a quality control report on a single audit performed by the Minnesota State Auditor on the Metropolitan Council of the Twin Cities Area’s (Metropolitan Council) use of U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) grants for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2010. During this period, the Metropolitan Council expended approximately $129 million from DOT grant programs. The State Auditor tested the DOT Federal Transit Cluster as a major program. Our initial review performed in August 2011 determined that the State Auditor’s work was Technically Deficient. Our follow-up review (performed in January 2012) determined the audit work was Acceptable with a Deficiency, and therefore generally met the necessary requirements. We found nothing to indicate that the State Auditor’s report on the Metropolitan Council’s internal controls and compliance were inappropriate or unreliable.
