Annotation: This is the fiscal year (FY) 2008 Annual Report of the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs’ (OJP’s) Office of Audit, Assessment, and Management (OAAM), which supports grant management and oversight in OJP as well as the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) and the Office on Violence Against Women (OVAW). .
Abstract: OAAM’s main responsibilities are to ensure financial grant compliance and auditing of OJP’s internal controls to prevent waste, fraud, and abuse; conduct programmatic assessments of OJP and COPS Office grant programs; serve as a central source for grant management policy; and oversee monitoring activities. In FY 2008, OAAM’s work resulted in significant improvements in grantee oversight, grant management and administration, business processes, internal controls, and audit coordination and resolution. OAAM developed and improved many grant tools, such as the Grants Management System, the Grant Monitoring Tool, and the Grant Assessment Tool. OAAM also performed program assessments of grants and grant programs to provide targeted, timely, and practical feedback to OJP. OAAM has developed a common grant monitoring approach applied across OJP program offices to ensure that grantees are managing funds appropriately, achieving critical programmatic objectives, and receiving the technical assistance they need to accomplish their goals. In FY 2008, OAAM tracked, reviewed, and reported quarterly on grant monitoring achievements across OJP and the COPS Office. In FY 2008, OJP and the COPS Office exceeded their target (monitoring 10 percent of active awards) by conducting programmatic monitoring site visits on 30 percent of active awards. 2 figures
