Secretariat: Commerce and Trade

Organization: Virginia Economic Development Partnership


We have audited the basic financial statements of the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (Partnership) as of and for the year ended June 30, 2023, and issued our report thereon, dated June 3, 2024. Our report, included in the Partnership’s Annual Report, is available at the Auditor of Public Accounts’ website at and at the Partnership’s website at  Our audit of the Partnership found:


• the financial statements are presented fairly, in all material respects;


• two internal control findings, first issued for fiscal year 2022, requiring management’s continued attention that also represent instances of noncompliance or other matters required to be reported under Government Auditing Standards; however, we do not consider them to be material weaknesses.  The Findings Summary included in the Appendix identifies the status of corrective action on these prior findings as ongoing.


In the section titled “Internal Control and Compliance Findings and Recommendations” we have included our assessment of the conditions and causes resulting in the internal control and compliance findings identified through our audits as well as recommendations for addressing those findings. Our assessment does not remove management’s responsibility to perform a thorough assessment of the conditions and causes of the findings and develop and appropriately implement adequate corrective actions to resolve the findings as required by the Department of Accounts in Section 10205 – Agency Response to APA Audit of the Commonwealth Accounting Policies and Procedures Manual. Those corrective actions may include additional items beyond our recommendations.
