Quality Control Review of Single Audit on the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority
On February 23, we issued a quality control review report on a single audit performed by Bert Smith & Co. on the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority's use of United States Department of Transportation grants for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2009. During this period, the Authority expended about $211 million on DOT grant programs. We determined that Bert Smith's work was acceptable with deficiencies, and therefore generally met the requirements of the Act, OMB Circular A-133, and the Transit Capital Investment Grants Program. We found nothing to indicate that Bert Smith's opinion or reports on internal control and compliance were inappropriate or unreliable. However, we identified audit documentation deficiencies and the need for expanded compliance testing in future audits.
