Our audit objectives were to determine whether the U.S. Postal Service 1) fairly stated selected accounting transactions in the general ledger and whether selected key controls surrounding those transactions were operating effectively, and 2) properly tested, documented, and reported its examination of selected key controls related to Headquarters and Accounting Services. The U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors contracted with an independent public accounting (IPA) firm to express opinions on the Postal Service’s financial statements and internal controls over financial reporting. The IPA firm maintains overall responsibility for testing and reviewing significant Postal Service accounts, processes, and internal controls. The OIG coordinates audit work with the IPA firm to ensure adequate coverage.
