Dear Governor and Legislative Leaders:
As required by Government Code section 8543 et seq., the State Auditor’s Office presents its audit report concerning our review of the State of California’s internal controls and compliance with state regulations for the year ended June 30, 2016.
This report is an integral part of an audit performed in accordance with Government Auditing Standards in considering the State’s internal control and compliance based on our audit of the State’s basic financial statements. Deficiencies in the State’s internal control system could adversely affect its ability to provide accurate financial information. Although we discussed with management some improvements to strengthen internal controls over financial reporting, we did not identify material weaknesses or significant deficiencies as indicated in the Schedule of Findings included in this report.
JOHN F. COLLINS II, CPA
Deputy State Auditor
