NASA has released its fiscal year 2016 Agency Financial Report that details the agency’s financial results and performance from the year’s financial statements that received an unmodified audit opinion with a “clean” mark for a sixth consecutive year.
The space agency said Thursday it received highest-possible opinion from an external auditor and results of the audit state NASA’s financial statements present the agency’s financial position and operation results in a fair manner.
David Radzanowski, NASA’s chief financial officer, said the “clean” audit opinion helps reflect the space agency’s commitment to excellence on matters of financial management and use of taxpayer dollars.
NASA added the AFR tackles the agency’s current progress on strategic goals such as achievements in research aboard the International Space Station, Earth science, technological development, aeronautics research and deep space exploration.
The space agency will release an Annual Performance Report with more details on the accomplishments in early 2017 along with the president’s budget request for FY 2018.
