- Full Report:
GAO evaluated the automatic data processing aspects of the Terminally Operated Personnel/Payroll System submitted for approval by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
GAO found that the system conformed in all material respects with the approved accounting and payroll principles and standards of HUD. In evaluating the system design, GAO looked at the automatic data processing to determine its adequacy regarding internal controls, audit trails, data integrity, and consistency with the accounting specifications. GAO concluded that to maintain the approved status of the system, planned changes should be discussed with its representatives and, if deemed significant, formally submitted for approval.
