Project Announcement: Oversight of the Audit of the FY 2021 Department of the Air Force General Fund Financial Statements (Project No. D2021-D000FT-0070.000)

Audit

Our planned oversight will begin immediately. The Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990, as amended, requires this audit. In accordance with the Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990, the DoD Office of Inspector General is the principal auditor for the Department of the Air Force General Fund Financial Statements. We contracted with the independent public accounting firm of Ernst and Young, LLP (EY), to audit the Department of the Air Force General Fund (DAF GF) Financial Statements for the fiscal years ending September 30, 2021, and September 30, 2020. The objective of EY’s audit is to determine whether the FY 2021 DAF GF Financial Statements and related notes are presented fairly and in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The objective of our oversight project is to provide contract oversight of EY’s audit of the DAF GF Financial Statements for the fiscal years ending September 30, 2021, and September 30, 2020, and to determine whether EY complied with applicable auditing standards. We will review the documentation for any classified samples and provide the results of our review to EY to use in developing their overall audit conclusions.
