Annotation: This is the fiscal year (FY) 2007 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).
Abstract: FY 2007 was the first year of operation for OAAM. Section 1158 of Public Law 109-162, The Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2005, established OAAM within the Department of Justice (DOJ). Congress approved a subsequent revision to the OJP organizational chart to include OAAM in April 2007, and the OAAM internal organizational design was approved by the Acting Associate Attorney General in August 2007. Throughout the OAAM organizational approval process, OJP worked to achieve the requirements of the Act through the Program Review Office (PRO) and the Grants Policy Office (OPO), which were established to strengthen internal controls, improve grant oversight procedures, and generally to meet OAAM legislative requirements. Following the approval of the OAAM organizational structure, the staff and functions of the PRO and GPO were moved under the OA AM umbrella. OAAM has three components: the Program Assessment Division (PAD), the Audit and Review Division (ARD), and the Grants Management Division (GMD). The responsibilities of each of these components are described in this report. This organizational structure positions OAAM to make, oversee, and support improvements in DOJ performance-based grant management capabilities and DOJ general operating policies and procedures. In FY 2008, OAAM will focus on hiring staff, completing its first assessments, maintaining strong internal controls, and continuing to oversee the implementation of DOJ grant management policies and procedures. 1 figure
