Fiscal Year
Executive Summary

The Office of Inspector General contracted with the certified public accounting firm of Harper, Rains, Knight & Company, P.A. (HRK) to conduct an independent evaluation of EEOC's compliance with PIIA for FY2022. HRK determined EEOC was not compliant with PIIA annual reporting consistent with Appendix C of OMB Circulars A-123 and A-136. The Evaluation Report includes three recommendations.

To ensure that corrective action on our findings and recommendations proceed as rapidly as possible, the Office of Management and Budget issued Circular Number A-50, Audit Follow-up. EEOC Order 192.002, Audit Follow-Up Program, implements Circular Number A-50 and requires that for resolved recommendations, a corrective action work plan should be submitted within 30 days of the final audit report date describing specific tasks and completion dates necessary to implement audit recommendations. Circular Number A-50 requires prompt resolution and corrective action on audit recommendations within six months of final report issuance.
