Statement on Compliance with Laws and Regulations

The Federal Managers Financial Integrity Act of 1982 requires agencies to establish and maintain internal control. The Office of Management and Budget Circular No. A-123, Management’s Responsibility for Internal Control, defines management’s responsibilities related to internal control. The DEA’s controls for handling of seized cash are established by applicable sections of the DEA Agents Manual. To obtain reasonable assurance that the DEA complied with laws and regulations that, if not complied with, could have a material effect on the DEA’s handling of seized cash, we tested the DEA’s compliance with DEA guidelines for handling seized cash contained in the following sections of the DEA Agents Manual.

Except for instances of noncompliance identified in the Finding and Recommendations section of this report, we did not identify any other instances of noncompliance with the guidelines contained in the DEA Agents Manual sections cited above.
