NASA's Sloppy FY 2014 Agency Financial Report

NASA FY 2014 Agency Financial Report“Audit of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Fiscal Year 2014 Financial Statements (IG-15-006, November 14, 2014) The Office of Inspector General contracted with the independent public accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) to audit NASA’s fiscal year (FY) 2014 financial statements. PwC performed the audit in accordance with the Government Accountability Office’s Government Auditing Standards and the Office of Management and Budget’s Bulletin No. 14-02, “Audit Requirements for Federal Financial Statements.”
Keith’s note: Much of this report was assembled rather sloppily starting with page 107. It gets really bad starting on page 147. The words are not words – just fuzzy images of text – not actual text. its like they scanned a document that had been copied 5 or 6 times and then faxed. I’d be willing to bet that large portions of this document are not Section 508 compliant. Things improve after page 160. You’d think that NASA would spend a little more time to make the document legible. in addition, due to the fact that a substantial portion of this report is not text searchable – and that the fuzzy text pictures almost certainly cannot be run through an OCR program, there are certain Open Government non-compliance issues as well.
