The Office of the Inspector General included an audit of TVA’s Federal Sustainability Report and Implementation Plan (SRIP) in its FY 2021 Audit Plan, based on the reputational risk of disseminating inaccurate information to the public. The objective of the audit was to determine if information in TVA’s SRIP has been validated prior to being disseminated to the public in accordance with any best practices. We found TVA did not perform procedures to validate data used to calculate nine of the ten metrics reported in the FY 2020 SRIP. TVA validated data for the greenhouse gas emissions information included in the report, but at most, performed reviews for reasonableness for the remaining nine metrics reported and calculated by TVA’s Environment and Energy Policy group or subject matter experts.
