We contracted with the independent public accounting firm Allmond & Company, LLC (Allmond), to audit the Surface Transportation Board’s (STB) financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended September 30, 2023, and September 30, 2022; provide an opinion on those financial statements; report on internal control over financial reporting; and report on 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 Allmond’s report, dated November 6, 2023, and related documentation, and inquired of its representatives.
What We Found
Our QCR disclosed no instances in which Allmond did not comply, in all material respects, with U.S. generally accepted Government auditing standards.
STB concurred with Allmond’s ten recommendations. We agree with Allmond’s recommendations and are not making any additional recommendations.
