Quality Control Review on a Single Audit of the Valley Metro Regional Public Transportation Authority, Phoenix, AZ
What We Looked At
We performed a quality control review (QCR) on the single audit that CliftonLarsonAllen LLP (CLA) performed for the Valley Metro Regional Public Transportation Authority’s (Authority) fiscal year that ended June 30, 2018. During this period, the Authority expended approximately $51 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) grant programs. CLA determined that DOT’s major program was the Federal Transit Cluster.
Our QCR objectives were to determine (1) whether the audit work complied with the Single Audit Act of 1984, as amended, and the Office of Management and Budget’s Uniform Guidance, and the extent to which we could rely on the auditors’ work on DOT’s major program; and (2) whether the Authority’s reporting package complied with the reporting requirements of the Uniform Guidance.
What We Found
CLA’s audit work complied with the requirements of the Single Audit Act, the Uniform Guidance, and DOT’s major program. We found nothing to indicate that CLA’s opinion on DOT’s major program was inappropriate or unreliable. We did not identify any deficiencies in the Authority’s reporting package that required correction and resubmission.
