House Gets Clean Opinion in 2011 Financial Audit

Mar 27, 2012

WASHINGTON – Today, Committee on House Administration Chairman Dan Lungren, R-Calif., issued the following statement after the independent Office of the Inspector General (OIG) released the U.S. House of Representatives’ Financial Statement Audit reporting a clean opinion for 2011:

“I am pleased the House received a clean opinion on its 2011 financial audit.  In 2009 and 2010, as a result of poor internal controls over financial reporting, the House received an adverse opinion.  However, since taking over as Chief Administrative Officer, Dan Strodel has taken swift corrective action to reverse these deficiencies and return the House’s good financial standing.

“I commend Mr. Strodel for his dedication to restoring the level of financial accountability that American taxpayers deserve.”
