- Full Report:
The City Administrator of the District of Columbia requested that GAO approve the system design for the District government's water and sewer billing system.
GAO found that the design is adequate and conforms in all material respects to the District's accounting principles and standards statement. To maintain an approved status, any planned changes in the system design should be discussed with GAO and, if necessary, the changes should be submitted formally for approval. GAO suggested that the District's internal auditors periodically review the system in operation to assure that it is operating as prescribed.
