Statement on Management Controls

In planning and performing our audit of the INS's management of the Automated I-94 System, we considered the INS's management controls for the purpose of determining our auditing procedures. This evaluation was not made for the purpose of providing assurance on the management control structure as a whole; however, we noted certain matters that we consider to be reportable conditions under generally accepted government auditing standards.

Reportable conditions involve matters coming to our attention relating to significant deficiencies in the design or operation of the management control structure that, in our judgment, could adversely affect the INS's ability to effectively manage the Automated I-94 System. During our audit, we found the following management control deficiencies.

Because we are not expressing an opinion on the INS's management control structure as a whole, this statement is intended solely for the information and use of the INS in managing the Automated I-94 System. This restriction is not intended to limit the distribution of this report, which is a matter of public record.
