U.S. Department of Education Memo to John Higgins from Jack Martin concerning Draft Audit Reports dated November 8, 2005

Please convey my sincere thanks and appreciation to everyone on your staff who worked diligently on this financial statement audit. The Department has reviewed the draft Fiscal Years 2005 and 2004 Financial Statement Audit Reports. Without exception, we concur and agree with the Internal Control Report and the Auditor’s Opinion. We also concur and agree with the report on Compliance with Laws and Regulation.

We will share the final audit results with responsible senior officials, other interested program managers, and staff. At that time we will also request that they prepare corrective action plans to be used in the resolution process.

Again, please convey my appreciation to everyone on your staff whose efforts permitted the Department to complete the audit within the accelerated timeframe. Please contact Gary Wood at 401-0862 with questions or comments.
