Audit Initiated of SAS–70 Review of the Enterprise Services Center
The Department of Transportation is a designated Federal shared services provider, offering a wide range of business services to its Operating Administrations and other Federal entities. As such, it is required by the Office of Management and Budget to provide client agencies with an independent audit report describing its internal controls in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70. Auditors will use the results of this review in their Fiscal Year 2010 financial statement audits for DOT and its client agencies. This audit is being carried out by Clifton Gunderson, LLP, an independent audit firm, subject to OIG oversight. Audit objectives are to determine whether: (1) management’s description presents fairly the relevant aspects of the controls placed in operation; (2) controls are suitably designed; and (3) controls are operating effectively.
