Annotation: The Office of Audit, Assessment, and Management (OAAM) of the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs (OJP) reports on OJP’s and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) monitoring of grants to States and local communities to increase public safety, improve the fair administration of justice, and advance the practice of community policing.
Abstract: A critical component of grant administration is monitoring that ensures the fiscal and programmatic integrity and accountability of grantees. Currently, OJP and the COPS Office are responsible for conducting programmatic reviews of grant awards, interacting with grantees to provide technical assistance as needed, and conducting periodic on-site monitoring visits. The OAAM was established by Congress to provide oversight of grant monitoring. Since FY 2007, OAAM has provided oversight of OJP’s and the COPS Office’s grant monitoring activities. Beginning in FY 2010, OJP required that program offices monitor at least 10 percent of the number of open, active awards as of October 1 of the new fiscal year. In addition, program offices that administer Recovery Act grants are required to monitor 30 percent of the funds awarded over the lifetime of the Recovery Act program and 10 percent of the number of grants for each solicitation or one grant per solicitation each year, whichever is greater. Improvements are planned for FY 2011, including an increased emphasis on conducting point on-site monitoring visits between OJP, the COPS Office, the Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO), and the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW). Also, additional monitoring and oversight will be provided to grantees that have been designated as high risk or have received a high monitoring priority. This report discusses the monitoring process, planned FY 2011 improvements to monitoring priorities and procedures, and FY 2010 monitoring statistics for OJP, the COPS Office, and OCFO. 16 tables and appended supplementary tables
