HART June 2015 Financial Status Update
HART CEO and Executive Director Dan Grabauskas answers community questions about rail transit.
Is HART required to undergo an independent financial audit?
Yes. HART is subject to annual audits of its financial statements by an independent audit firm (certified public accountant) to determine whether the financial statements are in order. The audit process includes a review of HART’s internal controls to identify deficiencies and tests of its compliance with laws, regulations, contracts, and grant agreements, which could have an impact on the amounts reported on the financial statements. The audit process takes approximately four to five months and in HART’s most recent audit, there were no findings. The auditors “did not identify any deficiencies in internal controls” and “found no instances of noncompliance”.
