We contracted with the independent public accounting firm of CliftonLarsonAllen LLP (CLA) to audit the financial statements of FHA as of and for the fiscal years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, and to provide reports on FHA’s 1) internal control over financial reporting; and 2) compliance with laws, regulations, contracts, and grant agreements and other matters. Our contract with CLA required that the audit be performed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted government auditing standards, Office of Management and Budget audit requirements, and the Financial Audit Manual of the U.S. Government Accountability Office and the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency.
In its audit of FHA, CLA reported:
- The financial statements as of and for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, are presented fairly, in all material respects, in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.
- One material weakness for fiscal year 2022 in internal control over financial reporting, based on the limited procedures performed. The material weakness was related to FHA’s financial accounting and reporting controls over borrowing authority and loan receivables.
- No reportable noncompliance issues for fiscal year 2022 with provisions of applicable laws, regulations, contracts, and grant agreements or other matters.
In connection with the contract, we reviewed CLA’s reports and related documentation and inquired of its representatives. Our review, as differentiated from an audit of the financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted government auditing standards, was not intended to enable us to express, and we do not express, opinions on FHA’s financial statements or conclusions about 1) the effectiveness of FHA’s internal control over financial reporting and 2) FHA’s compliance with laws, regulations, contracts, grant agreements, or other matters. CLA is responsible for the attached Independent Auditors’ Report, dated November 16, 2022, and the conclusions expressed therein. Our review disclosed no instances in which CLA did not comply, in all material respects, with U.S. generally accepted government auditing standards.
