WHAT OIG FOUND
Rural Development received an unmodified opinion from the Office of Inspector General’s (OIG)
audits of Rural Development’s consolidated financial statements. We determined that the agency’s financial statements present fairly Rural Development’s financial position as of September 30, 2020 and 2019, in all material respects, and were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. This includes the agency’s net costs, changes in net position, and statements of budgetary resources and related notes to the financial statements.
Our consideration of Rural Development’s internal control over financial reporting identified no material weaknesses and our consideration of compliance with laws and regulations noted no instances of noncompliance.
