- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Defense Mapping Agency's (DMA) compliance with the Federal Managers' Financial Integrity Act, including: (1) how it reports the status of its internal controls; and (2) the conformance of its accounting systems to GAO standards and related requirements.
The Department of Defense's Office of the Inspector General reviewed the DMA internal control program and found that it complied with the requirements of the act and with Office of Management and Budget guidelines. In addition, it was reported that all three accounting systems met the GAO financial and management accounting guidelines. GAO found that DMA has made substantial progress in accomplishing the objectives of the act by: (1) expanding its internal control program coverage; (2) issuing internal control review and vulnerability assessment guidelines; (3) expanding its internal control training; (4) performing over 1,100 vulnerability assessments; (5) completing 14 internal control reviews; (6) hiring a private contractor to review its production security controls in automated data processing operations; (7) establishing a good quality control system for use in monitoring vulnerability assessments and internal control reviews; and (8) establishing an agencywide, automated follow-up system for tracking internal control weaknesses and corrective actions.
