2011 Performance and Accountability Report

Financial Statements

MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER

I am pleased to present the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's financial statements for fiscal year 2011. Our financial statements are an integral component of our Performance and Accountability Report. The Accountability of Tax Dollars Act of 2002 extends to the agency a requirement to prepare and submit audited financial statements. The President's fiscal management priorities among other standards, requires us to obtain and sustain clean audit opinions on our financial statements. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued an updated Circular A-136, Financial Reporting Requirements, on September 29, 2010, which further refined reporting requirements for the PAR submission.

Our fiscal year 2011 financial statements received an unqualified opinion through the work of the dedicated financial and administrative staff in the agency. This means our agency has received an unqualified opinion for eight consecutive years and represents our continuing successful efforts to improve the financial management of the agency. To support these efforts, we conducted a full and open competition for our Agency’s financial management support services this past year. A private sector vendor won the competition proposing a federal Oracle R12 financial software solution. The scope of the contract includes hosting the software in a cloud environment, performing all operations and maintenance and supporting business transaction processing. The five and one half year contract calls for an implementation effective October 1, 2011 for fiscal year 2012 and includes four one-year option periods.

For fiscal year 2011, the agency received a $366.5 million budget. We completed the fiscal year within budget despite seven continuing resolutions. We had to freeze all planned hiring and office space acquisitions in January 2011 to avoid furloughs. The freeze continued throughout the fiscal year. The structure of the agency budget makes it nearly impossible to approve additional discretionary spending. Compensation and benefit costs now consume close to 74% of the budget. Office space rent costs require about 8% of our total budget. With 8% of the budget dedicated to the State and local program, only 10% of the budget is available for technology, programs, travel, and other general expenses.

As reported in the past, I have identified several critical issues for the agency to focus on to continue to improve its long-term financial health. An update on each item is provided below.

  • Execute a disciplined analysis of future workforce and infrastructure requirements. The agency has had a difficult time slowing the growth of future costs of compensation and benefits for current employees, which are on now on a path to increase to 74% of the EEOC's budget. These costs include salary, health and life insurance, agency contributions for retirement plans, social security, Medicare, worker's compensation, unemployment insurance, reasonable accommodations, and transit subsidies. In fiscal year 2012 we must set aside over $8 million for career ladder promotions and within-grade-increases.

    The agency must re-focus on why our telework program has produced no savings in office rent costs over the past ten years. The agency can no longer afford the cost of a brick and mortar service delivery model at 53 locations. I recommend that the Commission implement a two pronged approach to reducing office rent costs by 20% over five years. First, the Commission needs to take full advantage of national telework options and downsize our office space requirements consistent with industry best practices. While a substantial portion of the workforce engages in telework, there has not been a focus on adjusting space needs accordingly. Second, the Commission must do a better job of infusing information technology tools into our daily work to support more efficient business processes which are less labor intensive.

    Four years ago the agency contracted for an independent top-down study of the information technology infrastructure and staffing. The report called for substantial changes in the governance, organization, use of contracts, server and network operations, desktop management, and the skill mix of staff in order to more effectively spend the $25 million annual budget for the information technology function. Some progress has been made, but major events such as an extended electrical outage, an earthquake and major flooding, and lack of emergency preparedness have overshadowed the progress. These events clearly highlighted the need for substantial changes in strategic and tactical direction for our information technology program. The Information Technology Investment Review Board (ITIRB) working with the Office of Information Technology must take a much more active role to examine options and make technology investment decisions.

    One major recommendation is for the agency to contract for an independent cost/benefit study in fiscal year 2012 to examine the critical single point of failure data center operating in the headquarters building. Special emphasis will be placed on comparing energy consumption, cost of labor, risk factors for the location in Washington, DC, service level expectations, disaster recovery options and the economies of scale that could be achieved through a competitive acquisition process. Co-location with a secure, commercial data and network service provider could lower the life-cycle cost of operations and provide significant improvements in configuration management.

  • Recognize and manage competing budget priorities. Non-payroll costs continue to increase for homeland security, rent and office rehabilitations, and government-wide programs such as financial management services with a shared service provider. In order to avoid employee furloughs during the year, the agency froze hires, office space expansions/moves, and office space rehabilitations in January 2011 for the balance of the fiscal year. The agency also may need to take action in response to an Inspector General state and local program evaluation.

  • Formulate a long-term performance budget strategy. The agency continues to look into improved information approaches for annual budget justifications and Congressional briefing because of the workload by activity and the backlog of casework. More attention is needed on how we communicate our fixed costs and various workload metrics. Substantial work is underway to update a Strategic Plan which expires in fiscal year 2012.

In fiscal year 2012, we will continue the focus on accountability, financial transparency, and results through improved budget planning, performance metrics and financial management.

INSPECTOR GENERAL’S AUDIT REPORT

     November 14, 2011    

    

MEMORANDUM

TO:        Jacqueline Berrien, Chair

FROM:    Milton A. Mayo, Jr., Inspector General

SUBJECT:    Audit of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s Fiscal Year 2011 Financial Statements (OIG Report No. 2011-02-FIN)

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) contracted with the independent certified public accounting firm of Harper, Rains, Knight and Company, P.A (HRK) to audit the financial statements of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) for fiscal year 2011.  The contract required that the audit be done in accordance with U.S. generally accepted government auditing standards; Office of Management and Budget’s Bulletin 07-04, Audit Requirements for Federal Financial Statements, and the Government Accountability Office/President’s Council on Integrity and Efficiency’s Financial Audit Manual.

HRK issued an unqualified opinion on EEOC’s FY 2011 financial statements.  In its Report on Internal Control, HRK noted no areas involving internal control and its operation that were considered to be material weaknesses.  In its Report on Compliance with Applicable Laws and Regulations, HRK noted no instances of non compliance with laws and regulations applicable to the agency.

In connection with the contract, OIG reviewed HRK’s report and related documentation and inquired of its representatives.  Our review, as differentiated from an audit in accordance with U.S. generally accepted government auditing standards, was not intended to enable us to express, and we do not express, opinions on EEOC’s financial statements or conclusions about the effectiveness of internal controls or on whether EEOC’s financial management systems substantially complied with FFMIA; or conclusions on compliance with laws and regulations.  HRK is responsible for the attached auditor’s report dated November 11, 2011, and the conclusions expressed in the report.  However, OIG’s review disclosed no instances where HRK did not comply, in all material respects, with generally accepted government auditing standards.

If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact Senior Auditor Willie Eggleston on extension 4372.  Thank you for your cooperation and assistance.

Independent Auditors’ Report

Inspector General
U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission


We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), as of September 30, 2011 and 2010, and the related consolidated statements of net cost and changes in net position, and combined statement of budgetary resources, for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of EEOC management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America, the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States, and OMB Bulletin No. 07-04, Audit Requirements for Federal Financial Statements, as amended.

Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our audits of the EEOC for fiscal years 2011 and 2010, we found

  • the financial statements are presented fairly, in all material respects, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles,
  • no material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting (including safeguarding of assets) and compliance with laws and regulations, and
  • no reportable noncompliance with laws and regulations we tested.

The following sections discuss in more detail (1) these conclusions, (2) conclusions on Management’s Discussion and Analysis and other supplementary information, and (3) auditors’ and management’s responsibilities.

Opinion on the Financial Statements

In our opinion, the financial statements including the accompanying notes present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of EEOC as of September 30, 2011 and 2010, and its net cost of operations, changes in net position, and budgetary resources for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Consideration of Internal Control

In planning and performing our audits, we considered EEOC’s internal control over financial reporting and compliance. We did this in order to determine our audit procedures for the purpose of expressing our opinion on the financial statements and not to provide an opinion on internal control. We limited our internal control testing to those controls necessary to achieve the objectives described in OMB Bulletin No. 07-04, as amended. We did not test all internal controls relevant to the operating objectives as broadly defined by the Federal Managers' Financial Integrity Act of 1982. Providing an opinion on internal control was not the objective of our audit. Accordingly, we do not express an opinion on EEOC’s internal control over financial reporting and compliance or on management’s assertion on internal control included in Managements’ Discussion and Analysis. However, for the controls we tested, we found no material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting (including safeguarding of assets) and compliance.

A control deficiency exists when the design or operation of a control does not allow management or employees, in the normal course of performing their assigned functions, to prevent or detect misstatements on a timely basis. A significant deficiency is a deficiency in internal control, or a combination of deficiencies, that adversely affects the entity's ability to initiate, authorize, record, process, or report financial data reliably in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles such that there is more than a remote likelihood that a misstatement of the entity's financial statements that is more than inconsequential will not be prevented or detected. A material weakness is a significant deficiency, or combination of significant deficiencies, that results in more than a remote likelihood that the design or operation of one or more internal controls will not allow management or employees, in the normal course of performing their duties, to promptly detect or prevent errors, fraud, or noncompliance in amounts that would be material to the financial statements. Our internal control work would not necessarily disclose all deficiencies in internal control that might be material weaknesses or other significant deficiencies.

We noted certain additional matters that we will report to management of EEOC in a separate letter.

Compliance with Applicable Laws and Regulations

The management of EEOC is responsible for complying with laws and regulations applicable to EEOC. As part of obtaining reasonable assurance about whether EEOC’s financial statements are free of material misstatement, we performed tests of its compliance with selected provisions of laws and regulations including laws governing the use of budgetary authority and government-wide policies identified in OMB Bulletin No. 07-04, as amended, non-compliance with which could have a direct and material effect on the determination of consolidated and combined financial statements. Our tests disclosed no instances of noncompliance with laws and regulations which would be reportable under U.S. generally accepted government auditing standards or OMB audit guidance.

We limited our tests of compliance to the provisions of laws and regulations referred to in the preceding paragraph. Providing an opinion on compliance with those provisions was not an objective of our audit. Accordingly, we do not express such an opinion.

Consistency of Other Information

Management’s Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) is not a required part of the financial statements but is supplementary information required by the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board and OMB Circular A-136, Financial Reporting Requirements. We have applied certain limited procedures, which consisted principally of inquiries of management regarding the methods of measurement and presentation of the MD&A. However, we did not audit the information and accordingly, we express no opinion on it.

Responsibilities

EEOC’s management is responsible for (1) preparing the financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, (2) establishing, maintaining, and assessing internal control to provide reasonable assurance that the broad control objectives of the Federal Managers’ Financial Integrity Act are met, and (3) complying with applicable laws and regulations.

We are responsible for obtaining reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are presented fairly, in all material respects, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. We are also responsible for (1) obtaining a sufficient understanding of internal control over financial reporting and compliance to plan the audit, (2) testing compliance with selected provisions of laws and regulations that have a direct and material effect on the financial statements and laws for which OMB audit guidance requires testing, and (3) performing limited procedures with respect to certain other information appearing in the Annual Financial Statement.

In order to fulfill these responsibilities, we

  • examined, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements;
  • assessed the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management;
  • evaluated the overall presentation of the financial statements;
  • obtained an understanding of the entity and its operations, including its internal control related to financial reporting (including safeguarding assets), and compliance with laws and regulations (including execution of transactions in accordance with budget authority);
  • tested relevant internal controls over financial reporting, and compliance, and evaluated the design and operating effectiveness of internal control;
  • considered the design of the process for evaluating and reporting on internal control and financial management systems under the Federal Managers’ Financial Integrity Act; and
  • tested compliance with selected provisions of laws and regulations that have a direct and material effect on the financial statements and those required by OMB Bulletin No. 07-04, as amended.

We did not evaluate all internal controls relevant to operating objectives as broadly defined by the Federal Managers’ Financial Integrity Act, such as those controls relevant to preparing statistical reports and ensuring efficient operations. We limited our internal control testing to controls over financial reporting and compliance. Because of inherent limitations in internal control, misstatements due to error or fraud, losses, or noncompliance may nevertheless occur and not be detected. We also caution that projecting our evaluation to future periods is subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or that the degree of compliance with controls may deteriorate. In addition, we caution that our internal control testing may not be sufficient for other purposes.

We did not test compliance with all laws and regulations applicable to EEOC. We limited our tests of compliance to selected provisions of laws and regulations that have a direct and material effect on the financial statements and those required by OMB audit guidance that we deemed applicable to the EEOC’s financial statements for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011. We caution that noncompliance may occur and not be detected by these tests and that such testing may not be sufficient for other purposes.

We performed our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and audit guidance in OMB Bulletin No. 07-04, Audit Requirements for Federal Financial Statements, as amended.

Our audits were conducted for the purpose of forming an opinion on the financial statements of EEOC taken as a whole. The other accompanying information included in this performance and accountability report is presented for purposes of additional analysis and is not a required part of the financial statements. Such information has not been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the financial statements and, accordingly, we express no opinion on them.

This report is intended solely for the information and use of the management of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, the U.S. Government Accountability Office, and the U.S. Congress and is not intended to be and should not be used by anyone other than these specified parties.

Recommendation Status as of 11-11-2011
OHR should review and refine controls in place over time-and-attendance reporting to ensure that all employees report accurate and complete information to timekeepers. Additionally, OHR should implement a policy requiring return of timesheets with incorrect or incomplete information to employees for correction before certification of time-and-attendance information in EEOC’s online timekeeping system. Resolved
The CFO should work with the Director of RFD to ensure that documentation is maintained to support all transactions recorded in the general ledger. Resolved





Limitations of the Financial Statements

EEOC has prepared its financial statements to report its financial position and results of operations, pursuant to the requirements of the Accountability of Tax Dollars Act of 2002, the Government Management Reform Act of 1994, and OMB Circular A-136, Financial Reporting Requirements.

While the EEOC statements have been prepared from its books and records in accordance with the formats prescribed by the Office of Management and Budget, the statements are in addition to the financial reports used to monitor and control budgetary resources, which are prepared from the same books and records.

These statements should be read with the understanding that they are for a component of the United States Government, a sovereign entity. Liabilities, not covered by budgetary resources, cannot be liquidated without the enactment of an appropriation by Congress and payment of all liabilities, other than for contracts, can be abrogated by the federal government.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

September 30, 2011 and 2010
(In Dollars)

(1) Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

(a) Reporting Entity

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was created by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (78 Stat. 253:42 U.S.C. 2000e et seq) as amended by the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972 (Public Law 92261), and became operational on July 2, 1965. Title VII requires that the Commission be composed of five members, not more than three of whom shall be of the same political party. The members are appointed by the President of the United States of America, by and with the consent of the Senate, for a term of 5 years. The President designates one member to serve as Chairman and one member to serve as Vice Chairman. The General Counsel is also appointed by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate for a term of 4 years.

In addition, based on the EEOC Education Technical Assistance and Training Revolving Fund Act of 1992 (P.L. 102-411), the EEOC is authorized to charge and receive fees to offset the costs of education, technical assistance and training.

The Commission is concerned with discrimination by public and private employers of 15 or more employees (excluding elected or appointed officials of state and local governments), public and private employment agencies, labor organizations with 15 or more members or agencies which refer persons for employment or which represent employees of employers covered by the Act, and joint labor-management apprenticeship programs of covered employers and labor organizations. The Commission carries out its mission through investigation, conciliation, litigation, coordination, regulation in the federal sector, and through education, policy research, and provision of technical assistance.

(b) Basis of Presentation

These financial statements have been prepared to report the consolidated financial position of the EEOC, consistent with the Chief Financial Officers’ Act of 1990 and the Government Management Reform Act of 1994. This means that any intra-agency transactions have been eliminated. These financial statements have been preparedfrom the books andrecords of the EEOC in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) using guidance issued by the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the EEOC’s accounting policies, which are summarized in this note. These consolidated financial statements present proprietary information while other financial reports also prepared by the EEOC pursuant to OMB directives are used to monitor and control the EEOC’s use of federal budgetary resources.

(c) Basis of Accounting

The Commission’s integrated Financial Management System uses CGI’s Momentum, which is a highly flexible financial accounting, funds control, management accounting, and financial reporting system designed specifically for federal agencies. Momentum complies with the Financial Systems Integration Office’s core requirements for federal financial systems.

Financial transactions are recorded in the financial system, using both an accrual and a budgetary basis of accounting. Under the accrualmethod, revenues are recognized when earned and expenses are recognized when a liability is incurred, without regard to the receipt or payment of cash. Budgetary accounting facilitates compliance with legal requirements and mandated controls over the use of federal funds. It generally differs from the accrual basis of accounting in that obligations are recognized when new orders are placed, contracts awarded, and services received that will require payments during the same or future periods. Any EEOC intra-entity transactions have been eliminated in the consolidated financial statements.

(d) Revenues, User Fees and Financing Sources

The EEOC receives the majority of the funding needed to support its programs through congressional appropriations. Financing sources are received in direct and indirect annual and no-year appropriations that may be used, within statutory limits for operating and capital expenditures. Appropriations used are recognized as an accrual-based financing source when expenses are incurred or assets are purchased.

The EEOC also has a permanent, indefinite appropriation. These additional funds are obtained through fees charged to offset costs for education, training and technical assistance provided through the revolving fund. The fund is used to pay the cost (including administrative and personnel expenses) of providing education, technical assistance, and training by the Commission. Revenue is recognized as earned when the services have been rendered.

An imputed financing source is recognized to offset costs incurred by the EEOC and funded by another federal source, in the period in which the cost was incurred. The types of costs offset by imputed financing are: (1) employees’ pension benefits; (2) health insurance, life insurance and other post-retirement benefits for employees; and (3) losses in litigation proceedings. Funding from other federal agencies is recorded as an imputed financing source.

(e) Assets and Liabilities

Assets and liabilities presented on the EEOC’s balance sheets include both entity and non-entity balances. Entity assets are assets that the EEOC has authority to use in its operations. Non-entity assets are held and managed by the EEOC, but are not available for use in operations. The EEOC’s non-entity assets represent receivables that, when collected will be transferred to the United States Treasury.

Intra-governmental assets and liabilities arise from transactions between the Commission and other federal entities. All other assets and liabilities result from activity with non-federal entities.

Liabilities covered by budgetary or other resources are those liabilities of the EEOC for which Congress has appropriated funds, or funding is otherwise available to pay amounts due. Liabilities not covered by budgetary or other resources represent amounts owed in excess of available congressionally appropriated funds or other amounts. The liquidation of liabilities not covered by budgetary or other resources is dependent on future congressional appropriations or other funding.

(f) Fund Balance with the U.S. Treasury

Fund Balances with Treasury are cash balances remaining as of the fiscal year-end from which the EEOC is authorized to make expenditures and pay liabilities resulting from operational activity, except as restricted by law. The balance consists primarily of appropriations. The EEOC records and tracks appropriated funds in its general funds. Also included in Fund Balance with Treasury are fees collected for services which are recorded and accounted for in the EEOC’s revolving fund.

(g) Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable consists of amounts owed to the EEOC by other federal agencies and from the public.

Intra-governmental accounts receivable represents amounts due from other federal agencies. The receivables are stated net of an allowance for estimated uncollectible amounts. The method used for estimating the allowance is based on analysis of aging of receivables and historical data.

Accounts receivable from non-federal agencies are stated net of an allowance for estimated uncollectible amounts. The allowance is determined by considering the debtor’s current ability to pay, their payment record, and willingness to pay and an analysis of aged receivable activity. The allowance for accounts receivable is computed as follows: Accounts receivable between 365 days and 720 days old are computed at 50% and those older than 720 days are calculated at 100%.

(h) Property, Plant and Equipment

Property, plant and equipment consist of equipment, leasehold improvements and capitalized software. There are no restrictions on the use or convertibility of property, plant and equipment.

For property, plant and equipment, the EEOC capitalizes equipment (including capital leases), with a useful life of more than 2 years and an acquisition cost of $100,000 or more. Leasehold improvements and capitalized software are capitalized with a useful life of 2 years or more and an acquisition cost of at least $200,000.

Expenditures for normal repairs and maintenance for capitalized equipment and capitalized leases are charged to expense as incurred unless the expenditure is equal to or greater than $100,000 and the improvement increases the asset’s useful life by more than 2 years. For Leasehold improvements and capitalized software the amount must be greater than $200,000 or the improvements increases the asset life by more than 2 years.

Depreciation or amortization of equipment is computed using the straight-line method over the assets’ useful lives ranging from 5 to 15 years. Copiers are depreciated using a 5-year life. Computer hardware is depreciated over 10 to 12 years. Capitalized software is amortized over a useful life of 2 years. Amortization of capitalized software begins on the date it is put in service, if purchased, or when the module or component has been successfully tested if developed internally. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the remaining life of the lease.

The EEOC leases the majority of its office space from the General Services Administration. The lease costs approximate commercial lease rates for similar properties.

(i) Advances and Prepaid Expenses

Amounts advanced to EEOC employees for travel are recorded as an advance until the travel is completed and the employee accounts for travel expenses.

Expenses paid in advance of receiving services are recorded as a prepaid expense until the services are received.

(j) Accrued Annual, Sick and Other Leave and Compensatory Time

Annual leave, compensatory time and other leave time, along with related payroll costs, are accrued when earned, reduced when taken, and adjusted for changes in compensation rates. Sick leave is not accrued when earned, but rather expensed when taken.

(k) Retirement Benefits

EEOC employees participate in the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) or the Federal Employees’ Retirement System (FERS). On January 1, 1987, FERS went into effect pursuant to Public Law 99-335. Most employees hired after December 31, 1983, are automatically covered by FERS and Social Security. Employees hired prior toJanuary 1, 1984 could elect to either join FERS and Social Security or remain in CSRS.

For employees under FERS, the EEOC contributes an amount equal to 1% of the employee’s basic pay to the tax deferred thrift savings plan and matches employee contributions up to an additional 4% of pay. FERS and CSRS employees can contribute $16,500 of their gross earnings to the plan, for the calendar years 2011 and 2010. However, CSRS employees receive no matching agency contribution. There is also an additional $5,500 that can be contributed as a “catch-up” contribution for those 50 years of age or older, for the calendar years 2011 and 2010.

The EEOC recognizes the full cost of providing future pension and Other Retirement Benefits (ORB) for current employees as required by SFFAS No. 5, Accounting for Liabilities of the Federal Government.Full costs include pension and ORB contributions paid out of EEOC appropriations and costs financed by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The amount financed by OPM is recognized as an imputed financing source. Reporting amounts such as plan assets, accumulated plan benefits, or unfunded liabilities, if any, is the responsibility of OPM.

Liabilities for future pension payments and other future payments for retired employees who participate in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) and the Federal Employees Group Life Insurance Program (FEGLI) are reported by OPM rather than EEOC.

(l) Workers’ Compensation

A liability is recorded for estimated future payments to be made for workers’ compensation pursuant to the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA). The FECA program is administered by the U.S. Department of Labor, (DOL) which initially pays valid claims and subsequently seeks reimbursement from federal agencies employing the claimants. Reimbursements to the DOL on payments made occur approximately 2 years subsequent to the actual disbursement. Budgetary resources for this intra-governmental liability are made available to the EEOC as part of its annual appropriation from Congress in the year that reimbursement to the DOL takes place. A liability is recorded for actual un-reimbursed costs paid by DOL to recipients under FECA.

Additionally, an estimate of the expected future liability for death, disability, medical and miscellaneous costs for approved compensation cases is recorded. The EEOC employs an actuary to compute this estimate using a method that utilizes historical benefit payment patterns related to a specific period to predict the ultimate payments related to the current period. The estimated liability is not covered by budgetary resources and will require future funding. This estimate is recorded as a future liability.

(m) Contingent Liabilities

Contingencies are recorded when losses are probable, and the cost is measurable. When an estimate of contingent losses includes a range of possible costs, the most likely cost is reported, but where no cost is more likely than any other, the lowest possible cost in the range is reported.

(n) Amounts Collected for Restitution

The courts directed an individual to pay amounts to the EEOC as restitution to several claimants named in a court case. These monies will be paid to claimants as directed by the courts.

(o) Cost Allocations to Programs

Costs associated with the EEOC’s various programs consist of direct costs consumed by the program, including personnel costs, and a reasonable allocation of indirect costs. The indirect cost allocations are based on actual hours devoted to each program from information provided by EEOC employees.

(p) Unexpended Appropriations

Unexpended appropriations represent the amount of EEOC’s unexpended appropriated spending authority as of the fiscal year-end that is unliquidated or is unobligated and has not lapsed, been rescinded or withdrawn.

(q) Income Taxes

As an agency of the federal government, EEOC is exempt from all income taxes imposed by any governing body, whether it is a federal, state, commonwealth, local, or foreign government.

(r) Use of Estimates

Management has made certain estimates and assumptions in reporting assets and liabilities and in the footnote disclosures. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Significant estimates underlying the accompanying financial statements include the allowance for doubtful accounts receivable, contingent liabilities and future workers’ compensation costs.

(2) Fund Balance with Treasury

Treasury performs cash management activities for all federal agencies. The net activity represents Fund Balance with Treasury. The Fund Balance with Treasury represents the right of the EEOC to draw down funds from Treasury for expenses and liabilities. Fund Balance with Treasury by fund type as of September 30, 2011 and 2010 consists of the following:

The status of the fund balance is classified as unobligated available, unobligated unavailable, or obligated. Unobligated funds, depending on budget authority, are generally available for new obligations in the current year of operations. The unavailable amounts are those appropriated in prior fiscal years, which are not available to fund new obligations. The obligated, but not yet disbursed, balance represents amounts designated for payment of goods and services ordered but not yet received, or goods and services received, but for which payment has not yet been made.

The Fund Balance with Treasury includes items for which budgetary resources are not recorded, such as deposit funds and miscellaneous receipts. These funds are shown in the table below as a Non-budgetary Fund Balance with Treasury.

The undelivered orders at the end of the period consist of $17,854,128 and $32,464,528 for FY 2011 and FY 2010, respectively.

For fiscal years ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, funds in closed accounts of $2,407,813 and $2,172,713 were returned to Treasury.

(3) Accounts Receivable, Net

Intra-governmental accounts receivable due from federal agencies arise from the sale of services to other federal agencies. This sale of services generally reduces the duplication of effort within the federal government resulting in a lower cost of federal programs and services. While all receivables from federal agencies are considered collectible, an allowance for doubtful accounts is sometimes used to recognize the occasional billing dispute. In FY 2011 and FY 2010, this was not deemed necessary.

Accounts receivable due to EEOC from the public arise from enforcement or prevention and training services provided to public and private entities or state and local agencies. An analysis of accounts receivable is performed to determine collectibility and an appropriate allowance for uncollectible receivables is recorded. The allowance for accounts receivable is computed as follows: Accounts receivable between 365 days and 720 days old are computed at 50% and those older than 720 days years are calculated at 100%. Accounts receivable as of September 30, 2011 and 2010 are as follows:

(9) Contingent Liabilities

EEOC is a party to various administrative proceedings, legal actions and claims that may eventually result in the payment of substantial monetary claims to third parties, or in the reallocation of material budgetary resources. Any financially unfavorable administrative or court decision could be funded from either the various claims to judgment funds maintained by the Treasury or paid by the EEOC. In FY 2011 and FY 2010 $0 was recorded for contingent liabilities, which are the amounts considered probable and measurable by EEOC’s management and legal counsel. In addition, for FY 2011, there is one claim for which it is reasonably possible that damages will be paid. This pending claim is for overtime to which employees claim they were entitled. The estimated amount of this claim is between three million six hundred thousand ($3,600,000) and seven million ($7,000,000). The chance of this claim succeeding is less than probable, but more than remote. An arbitrator has determined that the EEOC has some liability in this matter but the amount has not yet been determined or unknown as of the date of the financial statements. In the opinion of EEOC’s management, the ultimate resolution of this pending litigation will not have a material effect on the EEOC’s financial statements.

(10) Leases

Operating leases

The EEOC has several cancelable operating leases with the General Services Administration (GSA), for office space which do not have a stated expiration. The GSA charges rent that is intended to approximate commercial rental rates. Rental expenses for operating leases during FYs 2011 and 2010 are $27,591,597 and $26,761,804, respectively. The EEOC has estimated its future minimum liability on GSA operating leases by adding inflationary adjustments to the FY 2011 lease rental expense. Future estimated minimum lease payments, for 5 fiscal years under GSA as of September 30, 2011 are:

(14) Earmarked Funds (Permanent Indefinite Appropriations)

The Commission has permanent, indefinite appropriations from fees earned from services provided to the public and to other federal agencies. These fees are charged to offset costs for education, training and technical assistance provided through the revolving fund. This fund is an earmarked fund and is accounted for separately from the other funds of the Commission. The fund is used to pay the cost (including administrative and personnel expenses) of providing education, technical assistance and training by the Commission. Revenue is recognized as earned when the services have been rendered by the EEOC.
