Case Number:
LM Number: 542183

Dear Ms. Dearinger:

This office has recently completed an audit of Washington Federation of State Employees Staff
Union under the Compliance Audit Program (CAP) to determine your organization’s compliance
with the provisions of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (LMRDA).

As discussed during the exit interview with you on July 21, 2011, no violations of the LMRDA
were disclosed in areas of financial activity included in the CAP. This does not exhaust all
possible problem areas, however, since the audit conducted was limited in scope and did not
include all areas of your union’s operation.

I want to extend my personal appreciation to Washington Federation of State Employees Staff
Union for the cooperation and courtesy extended during this compliance audit. I strongly
recommend that you make sure this letter and the compliance assistance materials provided to
you are passed on to future officers. If we can provide any additional assistance, please do not
hesitate to call.
