NMC Receives Clean Audit Report for 9th Consecutive Year (July 13 2016)

For the ninth consecutive year, the Northern Marianas College has received a favorable audit opinion – an unqualified opinion – on its financial statements. The College has also received for the third consecutive time an unqualified auditor’s opinion on its internal control and compliance report.

“The other members of the Board of Regents join me in commending the staff for their excellent stewardship of the funds that are managed by the College and for earning a clean bill of fiscal health from our auditors,” said NMC Board of Regents Chairperson Frank Rabauliman.

An unqualified opinion means that the financial statements present fairly, in all material aspects, the financial position of the Northern Marianas College as of September 30, 2014, and conform with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

According NMC’s Chief Financial Officer Tracy Guerrero, the College’s independently-prepared audit identified no material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, or material noncompliance with the College’s financial statements.

She also reported that for the first time in the College’s history, the internal control and compliance report that was prepared by the auditing firm contained zero findings. Guerrero also added the single audit findings identified in last year’s audit have been fully resolved. In addition, all prior questioned costs have been fully resolved.

“This year’s financial audit demonstrates the College’s commitment to being efficient and prudent with the resources that are entrusted to us,” said NMC Interim President David J. Attao.​

A copy of NMC’s financial audit, prepared by Burger Comer Magliari (BCM), has been transmitted to the Office of the Public Auditor.

“We also commend the leadership of Chief Financial Officer Tracy Guerrero and also the hard working staff at the Finance Department and the Procurement and Property Management Office, as well as other employees at the College, for working diligently to ensure that our finances are well-managed,” said Interim President Attao.
