Matters Identified at the Oakland Operations Office During the Audit of the Department of Energy's Consolidated Fiscal Year 1998 Financial Statements
The Government Management Reform Act of 1994 requires that the Department of Energy (DOE) annually submit audited financial statements to the Office of Management and
Budget (OMB). A DOE-wide audit was conducted to determine whether there was reasonable assurance that DOE's consolidated Fiscal Year (FY) 1998 financial statements were free of material misstatements. We conducted a portion of the DOE-wide audit at the Oakland Operations Office (Oakland) and its management and operating contractors.
