Audit Findings

  • An audit finding is an indication that a significant problem exists in your PHA.

  • authority being designated as troubled.

  • Preventing and resolving audit findings is a major component of the performance

  • of your management and fiscal responsibilities.

To preserve the independence and objectivity of examining

the financial statements, Public Housing Authorities are

encouraged to rotate auditors in receiving quality and

objective audits.

Note that contracts exceeding five years, including options,

require HUD approval.
