DHS Passes KPMG’s Internal Control Audit; Bennie Thompson Comments

DHS - ExecutiveMosaicThe Department of Homeland Security has received a clean opinion on its financial statements for the first time in the agency’s 10-year history, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

Michael O’Connell writes DHS’ office of inspector published a report Tuesday indicating that the department passed a full audit conducted by KPMG.

“DHS has now provided both Congress and the American public with greater confidence in its governance, financial compliance, and internal controls,” Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), House Homeland Security Committee ranking member, said in a statement obtained by Federal News Radio.

The IG credited DHS with adopting measures to improve its internal control over financial reporting but it must work harder to sustain progress in this area, O’Connell writes.
