Quality Control Review on the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County, Texas
On September 17, 2012, we issued a quality control report on a single audit performed by KPMG, LLP on the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County, Texas (METRO) use of U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) grants for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. During this period, METRO expended approximately $149 million from DOT grant programs. The DOT programs determined to be major by KPMG were: (1) the Federal Transit Cluster; (2) the Federal Highway Planning and Construction Cluster; and (3) the Federal Transit Clean Vehicles Program. We determined that KPMG’s audit work was Acceptable and met the requirements of GAGAS, the Single Audit Act, and OMB Circular A-133. We found nothing to indicate that KPMG’s reports on METRO’s internal control and compliance were inappropriate or unreliable.
