SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon a recommendation from the Audit Committee regarding acceptance of the 2013 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report;
FISCAL IMPACT:
not applicable
BACKGROUND:
An audit of The Woodlands Township’s financial records is conducted annually by an independent audit firm to ensure the Township’s financial transactions and statements are properly documented, recorded and presented in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

Blazek & Vetterling, Certified Public Accountants, conducted an audit of the Township’s 2013 financial records and reviewed the results with the Audit Committee on September 16, 2014. The auditors reported that the financial statements “present fairly, in all material respects, the respective financial position of the governmental activities, each major fund, and the aggregate remaining fund information of the Township, as of December 31, 2013, and the respective changes in financial position for the year then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the united States of America”. A copy of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) is attached for review. The Independent Auditors’ Report can be found on pages 12 – 13.

The auditors also reviewed the required “Audit Communications” report with the Committee, which is attached for the Board’s reference. This report notes that there were no difficulties encountered in performing or completing the audit, and there were no disagreements with management regarding the application of generally accepted accounting principles or auditing standards. The auditors also informed Committee members that a review of the Township’s internal controls conducted during the audit did not result in any reportable findings.
RECOMMENDATION:
Consider and act upon a recommendation from the Audit Committee to accept the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for the year ended December 31, 2013.
