Radford University for the year ended June 30, 2023

Applicable Fiscal Year: 2023

Report Category: Internal Control and Compliance

Secretariat: Education

Organization: Radford University


We have audited the basic financial statements of Radford University (University) as of and for the year ended June 30, 2023, and issued our report thereon, dated June 5, 2024.  Our report, included in the University’s basic financial statements, is available at the Auditor of Public Accounts’ website at and at the University’s website at  Our audit found: 


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


·         internal control findings requiring management’s attention; however, we do not consider them to be material weaknesses;


·         instances of noncompliance or other matters required to be reported under Government Auditing Standards; and


·         the University has not completed corrective action with respect to the prior audit finding as reflected in the Findings Summary included in the Appendix.


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 Topic 10205 – Agency Response to APA Audit of the Commonwealth Accounting Policies and Procedures Manual.  Those corrective actions may include additional items beyond our recommendations.


We did not perform audit work on the prior audit findings titled “Improve Compliance over Enrollment Reporting” and “Promptly Return Unclaimed Aid to the Department of Education” as noted in the Findings Summary included in the Appendix because the University did not implement corrective action during our audit period.  Corrective action has been ongoing since the fiscal year 2018 and 2021 audits, respectively.  We will follow up on these findings during the fiscal year 2024 audit.
