GAO was asked to comment on whether it had the authority to perform an investigative audit of the Bering Straits Native Corporation of Alaska for the possibilities of fraud and financial mismanagement. GAO held that pursuant to the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, it had no jurisdictional authority to perform investigative audits of the business transactions of Alaskan native regional corporations.
