Statement on Compliance with Laws and Regulations

As required by the Government Auditing Standards, we tested the OVC’s records and documents pertaining to its tribal victim assistance program to obtain reasonable assurance that the OVC complied with laws and regulations that, if not complied with, could have a material effect on the OVC’s administration of the tribal victim assistance program. Compliance with laws and regulations related to tribal victim assistance grant program is the responsibility of OVC management. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence about compliance with laws and regulations. At the time of our audit, the pertinent legislation and the applicable regulations were:

  • Victims of Crime Act of 1984,

  • Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA),

  • OJP’s Grant Manager’s Manual, and

  • OJP’s Financial Guide.

Except for instances of non-compliance identified in the Findings and Recommendations section of this report, the OVC complied with the laws cited above. With respect to those activities not tested, nothing came to our attention that caused us to believe that the OVC was not in compliance with the laws cited above.
