Management Letter for the Department of Homeland Security's Fiscal Year 2016 Financial Statements Audit

Executive Summary

The resulting management letter discusses 103 observations related to internal control for management’s consideration.  These issues, which are not critical and are below the level of a significant deficiency, include:  a lack of internal controls related to undelivered orders, inaccurate financial data, and inadequate and/or untimely reviews of transactions.  Internal control weaknesses considered significant deficiencies were presented in our Independent Auditors’ Report on DHS’ FY 2016 Financial Statements and Internal Control over Financial Reporting, dated November 14, 2016, included in the DHS FY 2016 Agency Financial Report.
