Audit Review Of This Report
AEP Audit Services performed a limited review of company performance statements contained within the 2015 AEP Corporate Accountability Report. Financial information was reconciled with AEP's audited financial statements, if applicable, or to such other sources as deemed appropriate. Selected processes used in accumulating the significant nonfinancial data were reviewed and the associated data reconciled to the sources(s). The appropriateness of the context in which data are presented was also reviewed. Finally, forward-looking information was verified as consistent with other public information disclosed by AEP. Based upon our review, we believe the performance information contained within the Report is appropriately stated, and that the processes followed in accumulating both the financial and nonfinancial information are reasonable.
