DISA Passes Government Audit Test Ahead of Most of DOD
December 6, 2011
After five years of preparation, the Defense Information Systems Agency has received its first "clean audit" decision under a federal law that mandates financial transparency.
DISA earned the audit green-light through an audit of its fiscal 2011 Defense Working Capital Fund financial statement. It represents DISA's accuracy in its accounting and financial management for its working capital fund, which includes money coming from its customers. A separate general fund contains money appropriated from Congress, and efforts to get that fund audit-ready are ongoing.
"This is an independent look according to accounting standards that says the customer – whether the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps or one of our other agencies out there, even such as the State Department – that we have fair and accurate books, and that their investments are fairly represented in our financial statements," said Jimaye Sones, DISA chief financial executive/comptroller. "For an IT-based organization that's as dynamic as we are, with all of the missions we support...this is quite an accomplishment."
