ABSTRACT

Department of Homeland Security Annual Financial Report: Fiscal Year 2008   [open pdf - 28MB]

"The Department of Homeland Security Annual Financial Report for Fiscal Year 2008 presents the Department's detailed financial information relative to our mission and the stewardship of those resources entrusted to us. It also provides readers with a sense of the Department's priorities, and our strengths and challenges in implementing programs that enhance the safety of our Nation. […] In our five years since stand up, we have strengthened our financial management operations and internal controls to protect against waste, fraud, and abuse and become better, more transparent stewards of taxpayer dollars. This report demonstrates the effects of our hard work to ensure taxpayer dollars are accurately accounted for and efficiently used. For the second consecutive year, we made significant progress improving Department-wide internal controls for financial reporting. As a result, I am able to provide assurances that internal controls over financial reporting are designed effectively, with the exception of the material weaknesses noted later in this report. Additionally, the performance measures for the Department are complete and reliable, and will be discussed in more detail in the forthcoming Annual Performance Report. The Annual Financial Report is an alternative approach to the consolidated performance and accountability report published in previous years."
