FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

There were no material findings of noncompliance disclosed during our audit tests. We commend the Pension Laws Commission for maintaining an effective system of internal controls.

 

AUDITORíS OPINION

We conducted a compliance audit of the Pension Laws Commission as required by the Illinois State Auditing Act. We have not audited any financial statements of the Commission for the purpose of expressing an opinion because the agency does not, nor is it required to, prepare financial statements.
