RSM auditor identifies areas to improve timely adjustments to Shawnee’s accounting records

Auditing service provider RSM has identified areas of improvement that Shawnee should make to manage timely adjustments to the general ledger.

In a report shared by the city last week, RSM noted that it believes Shawnee had a deficiency in 2019 of identifying and making timely adjustments to the general ledger for year-end adjustments. Additionally, RSM noted that auditing staff identified some uncorrected misstatements that both the auditors and city management agreed are immaterial to the city’s financial statements.

Don Cawby, the city’s finance director, said staff agreed to improve its processes and improve timeliness in making adjustments. Staff believes the issues will be resolved when the city switches to a new financial system in the coming months, he added.
