Annotation: This report presents the findings and methodology of the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General’s audit of the management of the Office of Justice Programs’ (OJP’s) grant award to the Supreme Court of Virginia under the Office of Justice Programs’ Adult Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program.
Abstract: The award provided $1.5 million to implement drug treatment courts that integrated substance abuse treatments, mandatory drug testing, and other sanctions with non-violent substance-abusing offenders across Virginia. The audit’s objective was to determine whether costs claimed by the grantee under the grant were allowable, supported, and complied with applicable laws, regulations, guidelines and terms and conditions. Grantee performance was assessed in the following areas of grant management: financial management, program performance, expenditures, budget management and control, draw downs, and Federal financial reports. As of April 2015, the grantee had spent $804,657 of the grant funds awarded. The audit found that the grantee complied with essential award conditions related to transactions, contract management, sub-recipient monitoring, Federal financial reports, and progress reports; therefore, this report does not include any recommendations. The criteria used in this audit are contained in the OJP Financial Guide and the grant award documents. This report’s appendix details audit objective, scope, and methodology. 3 tables
