Our planned oversight will begin immediately. The Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller)/Chief Financial Officer, DoD, requested the audit of the U.S. Special Operations Command General Fund financial statements. We contracted with the independent public accounting firm of Grant Thornton to audit the U.S. Special Operations Command General Fund Financial Statements for the fiscal years ending September 30, 2021, and September 30, 2020. The objective of Grant Thornton’s audit is to determine whether the FY 2021 U.S. Special Operations Command General Fund financial statements and related notes are presented fairly and in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The objective of our oversight project is to provide contract oversight of Grant Thornton’s audit of the U.S. Special Operations Command General Fund Financial Statements for fiscal years ending September 30, 2021, and September 30, 2020, and to determine if Grant Thornton complied with applicable auditing standards. We will execute the contractor’s audit procedures associated with reviews of transactions and facilities that are Special Access Program, TOP SECRET, and TOP SECRET/Sensitive Compartmented Information and provide an unclassified version of the results of our review to Grant Thornton to use in developing its overall audit conclusions.
