Reporting FY 2020 Results

Programmatic & Financial Reports: EPA issues programmatic and financial performance reports on an annual basis.

  • FY 2020 Agency Financial Report (AFR): Summarizes EPA’s financial results and presents its audited financial statements. Also includes EPA's FY 2020 Assurance Statement and FY 2020 Financial Statement Audit Report.

Ensuring Financial and Performance Accountability

EPA’s financial and performance reports satisfy legislative requirements under the:

  • Government Performance and Results Act
  • Federal Managers’ Financial Integrity Act (FMFIA); and
  • Inspector General Act Amendments of 1988

These pieces of legislation aim to ensure proper stewardship of federal resources.

EPA’s reports also adhere to Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidance:

  • OMB Circular A-136, Financial Reporting Requirements: to promote stronger connections between performance and budget planning;
  • OMB Circular A-123, Management’s Responsibility for Internal Controls: to report annually to the President on the effectiveness of EPA’s internal controls and the adequacy of the Agency’s internal controls over financial systems and activities; and
  • OMB Circular A-11, Preparation, Execution and Submission of the Budget: to prepare and submit the agency's strategic plan, annual budget, and annual performance report. 
  • Each of these guidance documents can be found on OMB’s Circulars website.
