As part of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLBA) of 2001, the Congress authorized a 3-year, $17 million per year school-based mentoring grant program. For fiscal year 2004, Congress has increased funding to about $50 million to fund additional mentoring efforts.
In examining the efforts of the Departments of Education, Housing and Urban Development, and Transportation to ensure that recipients corrected single audit report findings, GAO found that each agency had procedures for obtaining and distributing the audit reports to appropriate officials for action.
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO examined the procedures that Federal agencies use for the collection of audit disallowances. This is the third in a series of reports on how Government agencies follow up and resolve findings identified through the audit process.
