Project Announcement: Oversight of the Audit of the FY 2021 DoD Medicare-Eligible Retiree Health Care Fund Financial Statements (Project No. D2021-D000FT-0076.000)

Audit

Our planned oversight will begin immediately. The Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller)/Chief Financial Officer, DoD, requested the audit of the DoD Medicare-Eligible Retiree Health Care Fund Financial Statements. We contracted with the independent public accounting firm of Kearney & Company, P.C., to audit the DoD Medicare-Eligible Retiree Health Care Fund Financial Statements for the fiscal years ending September 30, 2021, and September 30, 2020. The objective of Kearney & Company’s audit is to determine whether the FY 2021 DoD Medicare-Eligible Retiree Health Care Fund Financial Statements and related notes are presented fairly and in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The DoD Medicare-Eligible Retiree Health Care Fund, although not subject to formal financial statement reporting requirements, must submit financial statements to support the preparation of the DoD Agency-Wide Financial Statements. The objective of our oversight project is to provide contract oversight of Kearney & Company’s audit of the DoD MedicareEligible Retiree Health Care Fund Financial Statements for the fiscal years ending September 30, 2021, and September 30, 2020, to determine whether Kearney & Company complied with applicable auditing standards.
