Dear Chief and Council:

Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) conducted a number of recipient audits in fiscal year 2012-13, including an audit of Mosakahiken Cree Nation. Attached please find a copy of the full audit report and a summary of the report. The summary will be published on the department's website in the coming weeks, along with this management letter.  Should you wish to, you may provide a written response to the audit to me within 30 days. Your response will also be posted.

The audit found serious deficiencies in appropriate documentation to support the expenditures claimed. A representative of AANDC will contact you shortly for additional follow up.

The audit report also included the following recommendations, which we advise you and your organization to address:
