The Governmental Accounting and Auditing Strategic Committee is providing this suggested report (Word document) for the requirements of the Minimum Standards.
Independent Auditor's Report
Required by Oregon State Regulations
We have audited the basic financial statements of the [name of entity] as of and for the year ended June 30, 20xx, and have issued our report thereon dated December 31, 20xx. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America.
As part of obtaining reasonable assurance about whether the [name of entity's] financial statements are free of material misstatement, we performed tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants, including the provisions of Oregon Revised Statutes as specified in Oregon Administrative Rules 162-10-000 through 162-10-320 of the Minimum Standards for Audits of Oregon Municipal Corporations, noncompliance with which could have a direct and material effect on the determination of financial statements amounts. However, providing an opinion on compliance with those provisions was not an objective of our audit, and accordingly, we do not express such an opinion.
We performed procedures to the extent we considered necessary to address the required comments and disclosures which included, but were not limited to the following: 
- Deposit of public funds with financial institutions (ORS Chapter 295).
- Indebtedness limitations, restrictions and repayment.
- Budgets legally required (ORS Chapter 294).
- Insurance and fidelity bonds in force or required by law.
- Programs funded from outside sources.
- Highway revenues used for public highways, roads, and streets.
- Authorized investment of surplus funds (ORS Chapter 294).
- Public contracts and purchasing (ORS Chapters 279A, 279B, 279C).
- State school fund factors and calculation.
In connection with our testing nothing came to our attention that caused us to believe the [entity] was not in substantial compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants, including the provisions of Oregon Revised Statutes as specified in Oregon Administrative Rules 162-10-000 through 162-10-320 of the Minimum Standards for Audits of Oregon Municipal Corporations [except as follows]: 
OAR 162-10-0230 Internal Control
In planning and performing our audit, we considered the [entity's] internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing our auditing procedures for the purpose of expressing our opinion on the financial statements, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the [entity's] internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we do not express an opinion on the effectiveness of the [entity] internal control over financial reporting.
This report is intended solely for the information and use of the board of directors/council members/commissioners and management of [name of entity] and the Oregon Secretary of State and is not intended to be and should not be used by anyone other than these parties.
