We also issued a report on internal control over financial reporting and on compliance and other matters as required by auditing standards (that report, including responses from management,
is presented in the attachment to this letter). In that report, auditors identified that the System should strengthen controls to help ensure the completeness and accuracy of the active
employee census data that employers submit.
