Independent Auditors' Report on DHS' FY 2019 Financial Statements and Internal Control over Financial Reporting
KPMG LLP (KPMG), under contract with DHS OIG, conducted an integrated audit of DHS’ FY 2019 consolidated financial statements and internal control over financial reporting. KPMG issued an unmodified (clean) opinion over the Department’s financial statements, reporting that they present fairly, in all material respects, DHS’ financial position as of September 30, 2019. However, KPMG identified material weaknesses in internal control in two areas and other significant deficiencies in three areas. Consequently, KPMG issued an adverse opinion on DHS’ internal control over financial reporting. KPMG also reported two instances of noncompliance with laws and regulations. DHS concurred with all of the recommendations.
