Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed an independent accountant's audit of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline Liability Fund's financial statements as of December 31, 1988.

GAO found that: (1) the audit found that the Fund's financial statements fairly presented its financial position; (2) the audit did not disclose any material weaknesses or noncompliance with laws or regulations; (3) while the Fund has never had to pay a claim since its establishment in 1973, damages related to a March 1989 oil spill are expected to exceed the Fund's maximum liability; and (4) the Fund will contest any claims related to that spill, since it believes that a shipping company's negligence caused the spill.
