Quality Control Review of the Independent Auditor’s Report on the National Transportation Safety Board’s Audited Financial Statements for Fiscal Years 2021 and 2020
What We Looked At
We contracted with the independent public accounting firm Harper Rains Knight & Company, PA (HRK), to audit the National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) financial statements as of and for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021; provide an opinion on those financial statements; and report on internal control over financial reporting, compliance with laws, and other matters. The contract required the audit to be performed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted Government auditing standards, Office of Management and Budget audit guidance, and the Government Accountability Office’s and Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency’s Financial Audit Manual. We performed a quality control review (QCR) of HRK’s report dated November 5, 2021, and related documentation, and inquired of its representatives.
What We Found
Our QCR disclosed no instances in which HRK did not comply, in all material respects, with U.S. generally accepted Government auditing standards.
HRK made no recommendations.
