Project Announcement: Oversight of the FY 2021 Department of the Air Force Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagement No. 18, System and Organization Controls Examination of the Defense Enterprise Accounting and Management System (Project No. D2021-D000FT-0072.000)

Audit

Our planned oversight will begin immediately. The Department of the Air Force requested a Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 18 (SSAE 18) examination of the Defense Enterprise Account and Management System (DEAMS) as of June 30, 2021. We contracted with the independent public accounting firm of Ernst and Young, LLP (EY), to perform that SSAE 18 examination of DEAMS. The objective of EY’s attestation examination is to issue an opinion on the Department of the Air Force’s description of DEAMS and the suitability of the design of controls to achieve the related control objectives as of June 30, 2021. The objective of our oversight project is to provide contract oversight of EY’s attestation examination and determine whether EY complied with the contract and applicable attestation and generally accepted government auditing standards.
