2020 Audit Statement
AEP Audit Services performed a limited review of selected company performance statements within the 2020 AEP Corporate Accountability Report that were deemed to have reputational, financial, or compliance aspects. Financial information was reconciled with AEP's audited financial statements and other sources as deemed appropriate. Nonfinancial statements were substantiated with press releases, internal communications, or source data from the business units. Forward-looking information was verified as consistent with public information disclosed by AEP.
Based upon our limited review, we believe the performance information contained within the report is appropriately stated, and that the processes followed in accumulating the financial and nonfinancial information were reasonable.
