Withdrawal of Approval of the Bureau of Indian Affairs Accounting System
AFMD-82-109, Aug 16, 1982
GAO reviewed the Bureau of Indian Affairs accounting system. The system, which was designed and approved in the 1950's, was redesigned in the 1960's.
Serious design and operating problems were found and approval of the system was withdrawn. GAO will assist the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs (Operations) and other officials of the Bureau and the Department of the Interior to redesign the system and to resubmit it to the Comptroller General for approval.
