Annotation: The U.S. Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) presents the findings and methodology of its audit of grants awarded to the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma (Perkins) under the Office of Justice Programs‘ (OJP’s) Children’s Justice Act Partnerships and Comprehensive Tribal Victim Assistance Program.
Abstract: The Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma (ITOK) was awarded $1,349,936 under three grants for support of the investigation and prosecution of child abuse and improvement in responses to crime victims. The audit’s objectives were to determine whether costs claimed under the grants were allowable, supported, and in accordance with applicable laws, regulations, guidelines, and terms and conditions of the grants. The audit also determined whether the grantee demonstrated adequate progress toward achieving program goals and objectives. The audit concludes that the ITOK accomplished all but one of the stated goals and objectives under the grants. The ITOK did not complete the requirement to develop a Strategic Plan and Logic Model. This objective was nearly complete, but was missing critical information. Although the audit did not find any significant problems with financial reports and progress reports, it found that ITOK did not comply with essential grant conditions related to budget control and management, use of grant funds, and compliance with special conditions. This led to the audit’s questioning of $131,535 in costs. The report presents four recommendations to OJP that are intended to improve OJP’s monitoring of the ITOK so as to improve its grant management. 1 table and appended audit methodology, schedule of dollar-related findings, OJP’s and ITOK’s responses to the audit draft report, and the OIG’s summary of actions necessary to close the report
