On November 15, 2022, CSOSA issued our Agency Financial Report (AFR) for fiscal year 2022. We are pleased to report that the FY 2022 financial audit resulted in a positive, unmodified audit opinion with zero material control issues, significant control deficiencies, or compliance issues identified in the audit report. These findings are consistent with the FY 2021 financial audit and an improvement from the FY 2020 financial audit.
The AFR is CSOSA’s principal report to the President, Congress, and the American people on our management of the funds with which we have been entrusted and we believe it clearly demonstrates our commitment to the effective stewardship of the public’s money.
Each year CSOSA is required to issue an AFR detailing financial and performance data for CSOSA’s two component programs: the Community Supervision Program (CSP) and the Pretrial Services Agency (PSA), an independent entity within CSOSA. CSP supervises adults on probation, parole, and supervised release as well as individuals subject to Civil Protection Orders or Deferred Sentencing Agreements. PSA supervises adults awaiting trial.
In the AFR, we provide general information about our financials, operations, challenges, and plans in a readable, non-technical format. Major contents of the CSOSA AFR are the agency’s audited financial statements with footnotes, auditor reports, select high-level performance information, and numerous management control and system assurances.
The fidelity of the reported data is evidenced by CSOSA having received unmodified opinions from our independent auditors since the agency’s inception. An unmodified audit opinion affirms that CSOSA’s financial statements were presented fairly in all material respects and in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.
We remain committed to managing CSOSA’s resources in a transparent and accountable fashion as we carry out a mission that improves the lives of everyone who visits, works, and resides in the District of Columbia.
