The Board of Directors
The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at
Columbia University:
We have audited the accompanying financial statements of The National Center on Addiction and
Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASA), wh
ich comprise the balance sheet as of December 31,
2012, and the related statements of activities, functional expenses, and cash flows for the year then ended
and the related notes to the financial statements.
Management's Responsibility for the Financial Statements
Management is responsible for th
e preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in
accordance with U.S. generally accepte
d accounting principles; this includes the design, implementation,
and maintenance of internal control relevant to the pr
eparation and fair presentation of financial statements
that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.
Auditors' Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these fina
ncial statements based on our audit. We conducted
our audit in accordance with auditing standards genera
lly accepted in the United States of America. Those
standards require that we plan and perform the au
dit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the
financial statements are free from material misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain a
udit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the
financial statements. The procedures selected depe
nd on the auditors' judgment, including the assessment
of the risks of material misstatement of the financia
l statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making
those risk assessments, the auditor
considers internal control relevant
to the organization's preparation and
fair presentation of the financial statements in order
to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the
circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the organization's
internal control. Accordingly, we express no such
opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the
appropriateness of accounting policies used and th
e reasonableness of significant accounting estimates
made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is
sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our
audit opinion.
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to
above present fairly, in all material respects, the
financial position of The National Center on Addiction a
nd Substance Abuse at Columbia University as of
December 31, 2012, and the changes in its net assets
and its cash flows for the year then ended, in
accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.
