We contracted with the independent public accounting firm KPMG, LLP to perform the audit of the consolidated financial statements of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for the year ended September 30, 2014. KPMG, LLP evaluated selected general information technology controls and business process application controls at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). KPMG, LLP determined that TSA took corrective action to design and consistently implement certain technical security account controls. However, KPMG, LLP continued to identify general information technology control deficiencies related to logical access to TSA’s core financial and feeder systems. Such control deficiencies limited TSA’s ability to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of its critical financial and operational data.
