Quality Control Review on the Single Audit of the Puerto Rico Highways and Transportation Authority
We issued a report on the results of our quality control review on the single audit that Ernst & Young LLP (Ernst & Young) performed for the Puerto Rico Highways and Transportation Authority’s (the Authority) fiscal year ended June 30, 2013. During this period, the Authority expended approximately $162 million from DOT grant programs. Ernst & Young determined the DOT major programs were the Highway Planning and Construction Program, the Federal Transit Cluster, and the Transit Services Programs Cluster. We limited the scope of our QCR to the Highway Planning and Construction Program and the Federal Transit Cluster because funds from these programs totaled approximately 96 percent of the Authority’s expenditures of DOT funds. We determined that Ernst & Young’s work was Acceptable, and therefore, met the requirements of the Single Audit Act, OMB’s Circular A-133, and DOT’s major programs. We found nothing to indicate that Ernst & Young’s opinion on the two DOT major programs was inappropriate or unreliable.
