At its Sept. 15, 2011 meeting, the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority board authorized a one-year contract with Plante & Moran for auditing services.
A policy adopted by the AATA board on June 16, 2011 limits contracting with any one auditing firm to a total of eight years. That meant that the auditing firm that AATA had previously used, Rehmann Robson, was not eligible to provide auditing services.
The request for proposals (RFP) was sent to 19 public accounting firms. Plante & Moran’s proposal was judged to be the best of the three proposals received by the AATA.
This brief was filed from the downtown location of the Ann Arbor District Library, where the AATA board holds its meetings. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
