SUBJECT: Criminal Division’s Response to the Inspector General’s
Audit of the Department of Justice’s Key Indicators

During the summer of 2007, the Office of the Inspector General, Denver Regional Audit Office, reviewed the Department of Justice’s 28 Key Indicators presented in the Performance and Accountability Report (PAR). In February 2007, the audit team met with key members of each component and provided its recommendations to the General Legal Activities components.

The Criminal Division agrees with the Recommendation 11 and will examine the accuracy of its 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, component management will notify staff of the significant need for accuracy of the key indicator information presented in the MD&A for the PAR.

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