Text: August 20, 1997 Members of the Legislative Audit Committee: The Railroad Commission of Texas (Commission) has made progress in addressing recommendations contained in An Audit Report on Management Controls at the Texas Railroad Commission (SAO Report No. 96-032, February 1996). During our follow-up review, we identified other actions management should consider to further improve specific processes or to more fully address the recommendations in the above report. Our review of prior-audit findings were only for those issues we felt had the greatest impact on the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the Commission in regulating natural resources, ensuring community safety, and promoting economic development. The most significant, but not all, audit issues have been addressed, as discussed in the attached table. The attached table summarizes the current status of our recommendations for the most significant audit issues. It also includes the Commissioners’ responses to our audit follow-up and additional recommendations. We thank the Commission for its assistance and cooperation. If you have any questions, please call Barnie Gilmore at 479-4785. Sincerely, Lawrence F. Alwin, CPA State Auditor kob/rmn Attachment cc: Mr. Charles R. Matthews, Chairman Mr. Barry Williamson, Commissioner Ms. Carole Keeton Rylander, Commissioner Mr. Mike Regan, CPA, Chief Financial Officer SAO Report No. 97-083
