Dear Inspector General Mayo:
At the request of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Office of Inspector General (OIG), we reviewed the EEOC OIG audit function's established policies and procedures in effect as of March 31, 2014. As described in the
Government Auditing Standards, established policies and procedures are one of the components of a system of quality control to provide the EEOC OIG with reasonable assurance of conforming with applicable professional standards.  In
accordance with the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) Guide for Conducting Peer Reviews of the Audit Organizations of Federal Offices of Inspector General, we assessed whether policies and procedures
submitted for review were current and consistent with applicable professional standards.
In addition, we applied certain limited procedures to determine whether the EEOC OIG had controls to ensure that Independent Public Accountants (IPAs), with whom the EEOC OIG contracted for audits and attestation engagements, performed their work
in accordance with professional standards. It should be noted that monitoring of audits is not subject to the requirements of Government Auditing Standards, and that it was outside the scope of our review to express an opinion on EEOC OIG's
monitoring of work performed by IPAs.
During our review, we: 1) obtained an understanding of the nature of the EEOC OIG audit organization, 2) assessed established audit policies and procedures and EEOC OIG's IPA monitoring process, and 3) interviewed EEOC OIG personnel. Our
review was performed at the EEOC OIG Washington, D.C. office. We reviewed the following IPA monitoring projects:
Audit of the EEOC's Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Statements
Independent Evaluation of EEOC's Compliance with the Provisions of the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 for Fiscal Year 2013
Based on our review, the EEOC OIG's established policies and procedures for the audit function as of March 31, 2014, were current and consistent with applicable professional standards as stated.
Sincerely,
Kelly Tshibaka
