This report presents the results of Carmichael, Brasher, Tuvell and Company's (CBTC) audit of the Government National Mortgage Association's (Ginnie Mae) financial statements for the fiscal years ended September 30, 2009 and 2008. In CBTC's opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, Ginnie Mae's financial position as of September 30, 2009 and September 30, 2008 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The report identifies one significant deficiency on internal control which was a repeat finding from last fiscal year and one reportable instance of non-compliance with laws, regulations and government-wide policies. Additionally, it discusses the issues/conditions in detail, provides an assessment of management's responses to the report, and makes recommendations for corrective actions. CBTC also noted other matters involving internal control and its operation that are not material to the financial statements and are being communicated separately to Ginnie Mae's management.
