The NASA Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO) has announced the ninth consecutive unmodified audit opinion on the financial statements of the agency´s fiscal year 2019 (FY 2019), the agency said.
This represents NASA´s ninth consecutive clean opinion from an independent accounting firm — the highest opinion possible.
NASA´s OCFO prepared the FY 2019 Agency Financial Report, which highlights the agency´s accountability to taxpayers as the agency works to accomplish President Donald Trump´s vision of placing the first woman and next man on the surface of the Moon by 2024, and then on to Mars.
Through the OCFO, NASA manages about 0.5% of the federal budget, and with effective strategic planning and fiscal management continues to expand humanity´s knowledge of science, technology, and the universe. This includes significant achievements in research aboard the International Space Station, Earth science research, technology development, aeronautics research and deep space exploration. These achievements unlock new opportunities, new technologies and new sources of prosperity for the nation´s economy, creating thousands of jobs for Americans across the country in multiple sectors, and inspiring the next generation to pursue education in science, technology, engineering, and math.
