     STATE OF ARIZONA  OFFICE OF THE DEBRA K. DAVENPORT, CPA AUDITOR GENERALAUDITOR GENERAL WDIEPLULTIYAAUMD ITTOHROGEMNESROALN   Independent Auditors Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting and on Compliance and Other Matters Based on an Audit of Basic Financial Statements Performed in Accordance withGovernment Auditing Standards   Members of the Arizona State Legislature  The Board of Supervisors of Pinal County, Arizona   We have audited the financial statements of the governmental activities, business-type activities, each major fund, and aggregate remaining fund information of Pinal County as of and for the year ended June 30, 2006, which collectively comprise the Countys basic financial statements, and have issued our report thereon dated June 15, 2007. Our report was modified to include a reference to our reliance on other auditors and for an emphasis of a matter for the retroactive reporting of general infrastructure assets as part of the implementation of Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) Statement No. 34. We conducted our audit in accordance with U.S. generally accepted auditing standards and the standards applicable to financial audits contained inGovernment Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Other auditors audited the financial statements of the Long Term Care Fund, as described in our report on the Countys financial statements. The financial statements of the Long Term Care Fund were not audited in accordance withGovernment Auditing Standards.  Internal Control over Financial Reporting  In planning and performing our audit, we considered the Countys internal control over financial reporting in order to determine our auditing procedures for the purpose of expressing our opinions on the basic financial statements and not to provide an opinion on internal control over financial reporting. However, we noted certain matters involving internal control over financial reporting and its operation that we consider to be reportable conditions. Reportable conditions involve matters coming to our attention relating to significant deficiencies in the design or operation of internal control over financial reporting that, in our judgment, could adversely affect the Countys ability to initiate, record, process, and report financial data consistent with the assertions of management in the basic financial statements. The reportable condition is described in the accompanying Schedule of Findings and Questioned Costs as item 06-01.  A material weakness is a reportable condition in which the design or operation of one or more of the internal control components does not reduce to a relatively low level the risk that misstatements caused by error or fraud in amounts that would be material in relation to the basic financial statements being audited may occur and not be detected within a timely period by employees in the normal course of performing their assigned functions. Our consideration of internal control over financial reporting would not necessarily disclose all matters in internal control that might be reportable conditions and, accordingly, would not necessarily disclose all reportable conditions that are also considered to be material weaknesses. However, we believe that the reportable condition described above is not a material weakness.

Compliance and Other Matters  As part of obtaining reasonable assurance about whether the Countys basic financial statements are free of material misstatement, we performed tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants agreements, noncompliance with which could have a direct and material effect on the determination of financial statement amounts. However, providing an opinion on compliance with those provisions was not an objective of our audit, and accordingly, we do not express such an opinion. The results of our tests disclosed no instances of noncompliance or other matters that are required to be reported underGovernment Auditing Standards.  We also noted certain additional matters that we will report to the Countys management in a separate letter at a future date.  This report is intended solely for the information and use of the members of the Arizona State Legislature, the Board of Supervisors, federal awarding agencies, and pass-through entities and is not intended to be and should not be used by anyone other than these specified parties. However, this report is a matter of public record, and its distribution is not limited.    Dennis L. Mattheisen, CPA Financial Audit Director
