Annotation: This report by the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) Office of Audit, Assessment, and Management (OAAM) - which provides oversight of DOJ’s grant administration - discusses the grant monitoring process; FY 2012 improvement to monitoring priorities and procedures; and the FY 2012 monitoring statistics for DOJ’s Office of Justice Programs (OJP), DOJ’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), and OJP’s Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO).
Abstract: Each year OAAM reports on the monitoring activities of OJP’s program offices and the COPS Office in order to identify overall performance levels during the fiscal year and opportunities for continued improvement. In FY 2012, OJP and the COPS Office followed the established monitoring process in assessing open, active grants. This involved setting monitoring priorities, forming fiscal year monitoring plans, and conducting monitoring activities. Also, in an effort to continuously improve monitoring standards and procedures and respond to issues identified throughout the year, OAAM completed several major technical projects that improved the monitoring oversight of OJP and the COPS Office programs. At the beginning of FY 2012, OJP had 13,134 open, active grants totaling $9.1 billion. OAAM used the Grant Assessment Tool (GAT) to produce risk scores and monitoring priority levels for OJP’s open, active grants. These priorities were used by OJP program offices to make monitoring decisions and create the fiscal year monitoring plans. The COPS Office followed a similar risk assessment process to guide the creation of its fiscal year monitoring plan. Monitoring statistics cover FY 2012 overall in-depth programmatic monitoring, financial monitoring, and focused programmatic monitoring. The appendices present data on the FY 2012 risk criteria breakdown and Recovery Act monitoring. 22 figures and 20 tables
