Summary:

The VA Office of Inspector General (OIG) contracted with the independent public accounting firm CliftonLarsonAllen LLP (CLA) to provide consulting services to the OIG with respect to selected financial reporting controls for the Integrated Financial and Acquisition Management System (iFAMS) at the National Cemetery Administration (NCA). VA is implementing iFAMS using an incremental approach with the first deployment having occurred at NCA in November 2020. The nature and scope of work for this consulting engagement was determined solely by agreement between the OIG and CLA and did not constitute an audit.

In its consulting letter, CLA provided the OIG with observations and potential risks in such categories as obligations, reconciliations, opening balances, procurement, and intragovernmental transactions. The OIG shared this letter with management for their awareness, and CLA included management’s comments in its letter.
