Audit of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ Firearm Disposal Practices

Component
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF)

The Office of the Inspector General is initiating an audit of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) firearm disposal practices. Our preliminary objectives are to: (1) assess the adequacy of the ATF’s controls over firearms approved for disposal, and (2) evaluate the ATF’s processes for ensuring all firearms sent to its disposal facility are ultimately destroyed.
