GAO reviewed internal control weaknesses in safeguarding computer equipment at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Walla Walla District. GAO found that: (1) the district's Information Management Office (IMO) used an unsecured hallway as the receiving area for computer equipment; (2) Corps regulations require that all property in a receiving area be secured to prevent loss or damage; (3) the district's Logistics Management Office has a secured receiving area, but it is not large enough to store IMO computer equipment; (4) IMO stores the computer equipment in the hallway pending assembly and completion of diagnostic checks; (5) staff advised that they have stored up to $400,000 of equipment in the hallway at one time; and (6) the risk of losing or sustaining damage to Corps property increases when IMO stores computer equipment in the unsecured hallway.
