Background: Baker Tilly has completed the attached June 30, 2019, year-end reports, which are being presented for the Board's consideration.
Baker Tilly considers the District's internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing their auditing procedures for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the district's financial statements. Internal control matters identified by Baker Tilly are reported to the District in the "Communication to those Charged with Governance and Management." While this Communication presents the auditor's observations on, and makes recommendations regarding, various district management and internal control issues; it does not express an opinion on the effectiveness of the District's internal control.

The Communication to those Charged with Governance and Management also includes a report on the status of prior-year issues.
Fiscal Impact Statement: No fiscal impact
