Project ID: 
QC2020026
What We Looked At
This report presents the results of our quality control review (QCR) of Allmond & Company, LLC’s management letter related to the audit it conducted, under contract with us, of the National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) financial statements for fiscal years 2019 and 2018. In addition to its audit report on NTSB’s financial statements, Allmond issued a management letter that discusses internal control matters that it was not required to include in its audit report.
 
What We Found
Our QCR of Allmond’s management letter disclosed no instances in which Allmond did not comply, in all material respects, with generally accepted Government auditing standards.
 
Recommendations
Allmond made three recommendations in its management letter. NTSB concurred with all recommendations.
