FY 2004 Assurance Statement
Federal Managers' Financial Integrity Act

I am pleased to report on the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's FY 2004 management and financial controls environment under the Federal Managers' Financial Integrity Act (FMFIA) and the Office of Management and Budget guidance.

EEOC conducted an evaluation of its management controls and financial management systems in effect during the fiscal year ending September 30, 2004. The evaluation was conducted consistent with the criteria and guidance in OMB Circular A-123, Management Accountability and Control (revised June 21, 1995) and the requirements of OMB Circular A-127, Financial Management Systems and Transmittal Memorandum No. 1 (dated July 23, 1993) and revised by Memorandum No. 2 (dated June 10, 1999). Also, EEOC took the necessary measures to assure that the agency's evaluation was conducted in a thorough and conscientious manner.

EEOC had no material weaknesses and 12 financial non-conformances. The agency corrected 11 of the non-conformances during FY 2004 and has developed a corrective action plan to resolve the remaining non-conformance during FY 2005.

Based on my review of materials and assurances by the agency's office directors nationwide, I am reasonably assured that EEOC's systems of management and financial controls during FY 2004 were effective and agency resources were used consistent with the agency's mission, in compliance with laws and regulations, and with minimal potential for waste, fraud, and mismanagement. Management controls have also been implemented to assure that programs achieve their stated results and that reliable and timely information is obtained, maintained, reported, and used for decision-making.

The management controls environment is extremely important to ensure fairness, quality, effectiveness, and efficiency in all aspects of the Commission's operations. As we continue to improve our management controls, we are cognizant of the important role they play to achieve our mission and provide services to the American public.
