Audit Initiated of DOT's Fiscal Years 2019 and 2018 Consolidated Financial Statements
In accordance with the Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990, we are initiating an audit of the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) consolidated financial statements for fiscal years 2019 and 2018. The objective of this audit is to express an opinion on whether DOT’s financial statements are fairly presented, in all material respects, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. We have engaged KPMG LLP, an independent accounting firm, to conduct this audit subject to our oversight. KPMG will conduct its work in accordance with generally accepted Government auditing standards and the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Bulletin 19-01, Audit Requirements for Federal Financial Statements. The audit report is due to OMB by November 15, 2019.
