FCA Board Receives Report on Agency’s FY 2012/11 Financial Statements

McLEAN, Va., Jan. 10, 2013 — The Farm Credit Administration Board today heard the auditor’s report on the audit of FCA’s fiscal year 2012 and fiscal year 2011 financial statements.

Brown & Company CPAs, PLLC, the independent accounting firm that performed the financial audit, concluded that the agency’s financial statements presented fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of FCA as of Sept. 30, 2012 and 2011, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

In addition, the firm found no material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting and noted no reportable instances of statutory or regulatory noncompliance that could have a direct and material effect on the determination of financial statement amounts.

FCA’s Inspector General concurred with the reports and stated that Brown & Company’s work provided a reasonable basis for its opinion.
