The Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Agency Financial Report provides important financial and performance information for the Department of the Interior (DOI). It is DOI's principal publication to Congress and the American people on the stewardship, management, and leadership of the public funds and resources entrusted to us. For the eighteenth straight year, the consolidated financial statements in this report received a clean (unmodified) opinion from an independent auditing firm. In addition, DOI successfully addressed the prior year material weakness. Unfortunately, one new significant deficiency remained from the prior year and one new significant deficiency arose in the current year, which is material. We are confident they can both be addressed in FY 2015.

The DOI financial community believes the next opportunity to provide value and increase transparency to the public is through better analysis and data visualization (i.e., putting a picture on the numbers). This type of alternative reporting will provide the public with timely and useful information in a simple presentation.
For FY 2014, DOI developed two interactive dashboards to demonstrate the power and flexibility of using technology to present Federal data: the Building Footprint dashboard and the Estimated Royalty dashboard.
