"In an era of continued government transparency and increased rules for the use of government funds, we view the audit as a major check in the balance of our operations. Our entire staff felt that your team was more than an oversight group, but rather a true third party lending advise, practical guidance and comprehensive review of both our fiscal year and financial controls. We hope that you will pass along to the audit team how pleased we were with their service and look forward to working with your team next year!"
