- Full Report:
GAO completed an audit on activities of the Bureau of Reclamation, Department of the Interior, and the Corps of Engineers (Civil Functions), Department of the Army, in the Central Valley Basin, California, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1956. This audit was made pursuant to the Budget and Accounting Act, 1921, and the Accounting and Auditing Act of 1950.
This report combines the related activities of the Bureau of Reclamation and the Corps of Engineers in the Central Valley Basin. Circumstances which prompted many of the recommendations contained in our report to the Congress dated December 21, 1956, on the audit of Central Valley, Folsom Reservoir, Kings River, and Isabella Reservoir Projects in the Central Valley Basin for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1955, have not changed. In this report we are, therefore, repeating those recommendations. Among those are (1) consideration by the Congress of matters having to do with allocations to power and other purposes of construction costs of the projects and (2) recommendations to the Secretary of the Interior and the Chief of Engineers on establishing policies jointly for accounting and financial practices necessary to present fairly the financial position of and results from the Government's activities in the water resources development program of the Central Valley Basin.
