Specifications include, but are not limited to: 1. Financial Audit - The contracted CPA firm will perform a Financial Audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, government auditing standards, Federal OMB Circular A-133 (including necessary filings) and Florida Statutes. The primary purpose of the audit is to express an opinion on the financial statements of the City. The examination and procedures related hereto contemplate the review of a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) if and when it is prepared by the City. The audit procedures used should be sufficient to enable the Proposer to express an opinion on the fairness with which the financial statements present the financial position of the City and the results of its operations and the cash flows of its proprietary fund types in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. In addition, such procedures should be adequate to determine whether the operations of the City were properly conducted in accordance with legal and regulatory requirements, including Florida Statutes and the City of Opa-locka Ordinance. 2. Review of Internal Controls - An evaluation is to be made of the system of internal controls, including the control environment, accounting systems and specific control procedures, to assess the extent to which the controls can be relied upon to ensure accurate information, to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and to provide for efficient and effective operations. In order to assess the control risk, the Firm shall perform tests of controls and properly document its assessment. Reportable conditions shall be communicated in writing in accordance with applicable Statements of Auditing Standards issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and generally accepted auditing standards. 3. Management Letter - A management letter will be issued in compliance with the City Ordinance that contains significant audit findings which, among other matters, shall include the following material items noted during the performance of the audit: a. A statement as to whether or not inaccuracies, shortages, defalcations, fraud and/or violations of laws, rules, regulations and contractual provisions reported in the preceding annual financial audit report have been corrected. b. Statement as to whether or not recommendations made in the preceding annual financial audit report have been followed. c. A statement as to whether or not the City is in a state of financial emergency as a consequence of conditions described in Section 218.503(1), Florida Statutes. When there has been a determination that the City is technically in a state of financial emergency, but is not in financial difficulty or experiencing a financial crisis, the Management Letter shall explain the basis for that conclusion. (For example the explanation should describe accounting practices that place the deficits in the proper perspective) When there has been a fund balance or retained earnings deficit for two consecutive years and a determination has been made that there is no financial emergency the Management Letter shall explain the circumstances that led to that conclusion. (For example the explanation should identify specific resources of the City that are available to cover the deficits). d. Recommendations to improve the Citys present financial management, accounting procedures and internal controls. This shall include recommendations addressing deteriorating financial conditions disclosed pursuant to Section 218.39(5), Florida Statutes. e. A statement as to whether or not the City complied with Section 218.415, Florida Statutes, regarding the investment of public funds.
