Statement on Management Controls

In planning and performing our audit of the OJP's Technical Assistance and Training program, we evaluated the OJP's management controls for the purpose of determining our auditing procedures. This evaluation was not made for the purpose of providing assurances of the management control structure as a whole.

Reportable conditions involve matters coming to our attention relating to significant deficiences in the design or operation of the management control structure that, in our judgment, could adversely affect the OJP's ability to effectively manage its achievement of the Technical Assistance and Training program. As discussed in the Findings and Recommendations section of this report, for the 21 grants in our sample we identified weaknesses in the monitoring of grants and in the development of adequate performance measures to evaluate the accomplishments of the grants.

Because we are not expressing an opinion on the OJP's management control structure as a whole, this statement is intended solely for the information and use of the OJP in managing its Technical Assistance and Training grants. This restriction is not intended to limit the distribution of this report, which is a matter of public record.
