SUBJECT: OIG Audit of Department of Justice Key Indicators

The Antitrust Division has reviewed the draft audit report of the OIG’s audit of DOJ’s key indicators and the corresponding memorandum dated February 27, 2008.

The Division agrees with recommendation eleven and will continue carefully to examine the accuracy of the Division’s Management Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) narratives covering the key indicators and verify supporting information necessary to ensure the accuracy of the key indicator performance data. Additionally, Division management will stress to staff responsible for compilation of key indicator data the significant need for accuracy of the key indicator information presented in the MD&A for the Performance and Accountability Report (PAR).

We appreciate your comments and will use these recommendations to improve our reporting processes in the future.

If you have any questions please contact me at (202) 514-4005 or Mark Gavin, Chief, Budget and Fiscal Unit, at (202) 514-0799.
