GAO Performance and Accountability Highlights 2006
Managing Our Resources
Resources Used to Achieve Our
Fiscal Year 2006 Performance Goals
Our financial statements for fiscal year
2006 received an unqualified opinion
from an independent auditor. The audi-
tor also found our internal controls to be
effective-which means that no material
weaknesses were identified-and the
auditor reported substantial compli-
ance with the requirements for financial
systems in the Federal Financial Man-
agement Improvement Act of 1996. In
addition, the auditor found no instances
of noncompliance with the laws or
regulations in the areas tested. The state-
ments and their accompanying notes,
along with the auditor's report, appear
later in this report. Table 2 summarizes
key data. Compared with the statements
of large and complex agencies in the
executive branch, our statements present
a relatively simple picture of a small yet
very important agency in the legislative
branch. We focus most of our financial
activity on the execution of our congres-
sionally approved budget with most of
our resources devoted to the human
capital needed for our mission of sup-
porting the Congress with professional,
objective, fact-based, nonpartisan, non-
ideological, fair, and balanced informa-
tion and analysis.
