SUBJECT: DEA’s Response to the OIG’s Report, Audit of Department of Justice’s Key Indicators, February 2008

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has received your February 2008 report, Audit of Department of Justice’s Key Indicators, and appreciates OIG’s efforts in conducting the audit. DEA received no recommendations resulting from this audit.

The Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) audit looked at the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) 28 key indicators utilized to measure the annual progress towards achieving the four strategic goals of its Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years (FY) 2003-2008. Only one indicator in this review was applicable to DEA.

DEA, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF), is responsible for implementing and measuring the Consolidated Priority Organization Target-Linked Drug Trafficking Organizations Disrupted and Dismantled key indicator. This indicator falls under the strategic goal of Enforcing Federal Laws and Representing the Rights and Interests of the American People. As of the completion of OIG’s field work, there were no CPOT-linked disruptions or dismantlements involving federal agencies other than DEA or FBI. DEA was pleased to learn that the OIG’s audit did not find any issues with DEA’s implementation of this key indicator.

If you or members of your staff have any questions regarding DEA’s response to the OIG’s audit, please contact Senior Inspector Michael Stanfill at 202-307-8769.
