205 CMR 139.08 - Audit of Gaming Licensee Operations by Commission
In accordance with M.G.L. c. 23K, § 65 the commission shall audit on an annual basis, and at other times the commission, or the IEB, determines necessary the accounts, programs, activities, and functions of a gaming licensee and/or any aspect of the gaming establishment and compliance with any provision of the gaming licensee's system of internal controls approved in accordance with 205 CMR 138.02: Licensee's System of Internal Controls. To conduct the audit, authorized officers and employees of the commission shall be given access by the gaming licensee to such accounts at reasonable times and may require the production of books, documents, vouchers and other records relating to any matter within the scope of the audit and as otherwise provided in accordance with 205 CMR 142.00: Regulatory Monitoring and Inspections; provided however, that a gaming licensee's tax returns will not be audited by the commission. All audits shall be conducted in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the standards established by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. In any audit report of the accounts, funds, programs, activities and functions of a gaming licensee issued by the commission containing adverse or critical audit results, the commission may require a response, in writing, to the audit results. Such a response shall be forwarded to the commission within 15 days of notification by the commission. Where possible, efforts will be made not to audit areas that were the subject of, and satisfactorily addressed by, the annual audit required in accordance with 205 CMR 139.07.
Prior to submitting the requisite report required in accordance with M.G.L. c. 23K, § 65 to the clerks of the house of representatives and the senate, the gaming licensee shall be offered an opportunity to review the commission's report and make any requests allowed in accordance with 205 CMR 139.02. The commission may modify the information contained in the report to address the concern, but shall not adjust the findings of the audit.
