The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) received an unmodified, or clean, audit opinion on its financial statements for fiscal year (FY) 2020. This is the eighth consecutive year that the FirstNet Authority has earned a clean audit. The audit identified zero material weaknesses, zero significant deficiencies, and zero management-level control deficiencies.
The FirstNet Authority’s mission is to ensure the building, operation, and maintenance of FirstNet, the nationwide public safety broadband network. Inherent to this mission is our responsibility to be strong fiscal stewards of the public safety resources entrusted to us. One way we uphold this responsibility is by ensuring consistently clean audit opinions.
