Dear Chief Morgan and Council:

Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs (CIRNA), formally known as Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC), conducted a number of recipient audits in fiscal year 2014-15, including an audit of Liard First Nation. Please find attached 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, you may provide a written response to me, pertaining to this audit within 30 days. Your response will also be posted.

As a result of this recipient audit, a recoverable amount has been identified.  A representative of CIRNA will contact you shortly to discuss the next steps related to an appropriate repayment schedule.

The audit report also included a number of recommendations to assist in improving management practices. We look forward to working together to develop a plan to address the management recommendations.

Please contact your regional CIRNA representative to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about this audit.
