We contracted with the independent public accounting firm KPMG LLP (KPMG) to perform the audit of the consolidated financial statements of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for the year ended September 30, 2014. KPMG evaluated selected general information technology controls, and information technology (IT) entity-level controls, and business process application controls at DHS’ components. KPMG noted that the DHS Components made progress in the remediation of certain IT deficiencies we reported in FY 2013, approximately 35 percent of the prior year IT deficiencies.
