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 auditors' report describing ESC's internal controls in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16. The Department and other client agencies' auditors will use the results of this review in their fiscal year 2012's financial statement audits. KPMG, LLP, an independent audit firm, will carry out this engagement, subject to OIG's oversight, and determine whether: (1) management's description of ESC's systems are fairly presented; (2) controls are suitably designed; (3) controls are operating effectively throughout the period of October 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012.
