Audit

Our planned oversight will begin immediately. The Assistant Secretary of the Army (Financial Management and Comptroller) requested an SSAE 18 examination of the General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS) administration and operational support services for the period October 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021. We contracted with the independent public accounting firm of KPMG LLP, to perform that examination. The objective of KPMG’s attestation examination is to issue an opinion on the Army’s description of the system supporting the GFEBS administration and support services and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of the controls to achieve the related control objectives stated in the description. The objective of this oversight project is to provide contract oversight of KPMG’s attestation examination and determine whether KPMG complied with the contract and applicable attestation and generally accepted government auditing standards.
