Matters Identified at the Richland Operations Office During the Audit of the Department of Energy's Consolidated Fiscal Year 1998 Financial Statements
The Government Management Reform Act of 1994 requires that the Department of Energy (DOE) annually submit audited financial statements to the Office of Management and
Budget (OMB). A departmentwide audit was conducted to determine whether there was reasonable assurance that DOE's consolidated Fiscal Year (FY) 1998 financial statements were free of material misstatements. We conducted a portion of the departmentwide audit at the Richland Operations Office, its management and integrating contractor, Fluor Daniel Hanford, Incorporated, and one of its integrated management and operating contractors, Battelle-Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
