KPMG, under contract with DHS OIG, audited the National Protection and Programs Directorate’s financial statements and internal control over financial reporting. The resulting management letter discusses 14 observations related to internal control for management’s consideration. The auditors identified internal control deficiencies in several processes including revenue accrual, personnel actions, journal entry reviews, performance reviews, contract expense approvals, time keeping, and intra-governmental payment and collection expense approvals. These deficiencies are not considered significant and were not required to be reported 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.
