TALLADEGA -- The Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind earned an unmodified audit for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2017, from the state Auditors of Public Accounts, according to a press release.

“An unmodified opinion is the best rating given by public examiners, and we are very pleased that our efforts to ensure financial accountability have earned these results,” AIDB President Dr. John Masica said in the release.

“Fiscal accountability is one of our strongest priorities … Effective management of resources is critical to our goal of providing quality education and training programs for our students who are deaf, blind and deafblind. Wise fiscal management enables us to invest effectively in the children and adults we serve.”

The audit found no issues with internal controls, no issues of non-compliance with Government Auditing Standards and no other reportable conditions.

“In our opinion, (AIDB) complied, in all material respects, with the types of compliance requirements on each of its major federal programs for the year ended Sept. 30, 2017,” according to the auditors’ report.
