Request for Proposals for INDEPENDENT AUDIT SERVICES (Detailed PDF):
Summary: The Town of Westlake is requesting proposals from qualified firms of certified public accountants to perform the Town’s financial audits for the three fiscal years beginning October 1, 2021, and ending September 30, 2026, with the option of auditing the financial statements for each of the two subsequent fiscal years.
In addition to the Town’s audit, the following entities will also need audits for the three fiscal years beginning September 1, 2021, and ending August 31, 2026, with the option of auditing the financial statements for each of the two subsequent fiscal years.
- Westlake Academy – Blended component unit of the Town
- Westlake Academy Foundation – Component unit of Westlake Academy
- Texas Student Housing – Discretely presented component units of the Town
- Texas Student Housing Authority
- Texas Student Housing Corporation – College Station Project
- Texas Student Housing Corporation – Denton Project
These audits are to be performed in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, the standards set forth for financial audits in the General Accounting Office’s (GAO) Government Auditing Standards, Audits of States and Local Governments, as well as examination for compliance with procedures established by Ordinance or where applicable, State and Federal laws or regulations. The Finance Department submits its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report to the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Program. The Town; therefore, is searching for a firm that actively participates in technically assisting clients that have previously been awarded the certificate. A Request for Proposal (RFP) is being issued in lieu of an Invitation to Bid (ITB) due to the specialized nature of the Scope of Work for this project.
