Before the Subcommittee on Government Management, Organization and Procurement Committee on Oversight and Government Reform U.S. House
Testimony of William S. Maharay, Deputy Inspector General for Audit Services U.S. Department of Energy, Washington, D.C.
Testimony on issues associated with the FY 2005 and 2006 Audits of the Department of Energy's Financial Statements. Over the years, the Office of Inspector General has conducted and overseen a number of reviews of the accounting and financial operations of the Department. Our reviews related to the audits of the year-end financial statements have covered accounting information system issues, financial statement reporting, and actions to remediate financial accounting and reporting weaknesses. Prior to discussing these subjects, I would like to provide some background information on the Department's financial information management system.
