RTA has received the Ohio Auditor of State Award from State Auditor Dave Yost for faultless record-keeping following a recently completed financial audit.
“This recognition is a result of the meticulous work of the finance and accounting departments and represents the team’s commitment to excellence,” said CFO Mary Stanforth.
“During these challenging economic times, this level of diligence keeps us mindful of the dollars entrusted to us by the communities we serve,” she added.
The Auditor of State Award is presented to local governments and school districts upon the completion of a financial audit, according to the Auditor of State’s office. Those who receive the award are recognized for timely filing of financial reports in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and for reports that are clean.
The clean audit report means that RTA’s financial audit did not contain findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, Single Audit findings, or any questioned costs, according to State Auditor Dave Yost in a congratulations letter to RTA.
“Clean and accurate record-keeping are the foundation for good government, and the taxpayers can take pride in your commitment to accountability,” Yost wrote.
