Annotation: This report presents the findings and methodology of the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG’s) audit of the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ (BJS’) cooperative agreement awarded to the Rand Corporation (RAND) in Santa Monica, CA, for the design and implementation of the National Census of Victim Service Providers (NCVSP) and to solicit input from victim service providers.
Abstract: RAND was awarded $4,900,498 under award number 2012-VF-GX-K025. The goal of the NCVSP is to provide the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs (OJP), policymakers, and the research community with a national profile of what services are being provided to victims, who is being served, emerging trends, and what gaps in services and their delivery exist. As of February 2017, RAND had drawn down $2,395,744 of the total award. The audit’s objective was to determine whether costs claimed under the cooperative agreement were allowable, supported, and in accordance with applicable laws, regulations, guidelines, and terms and conditions of the award, as well as to determine whether RAND demonstrated adequate progress toward program goals and objectives. The audit determined that RAND generally managed the award in accordance with its requirements and demonstrated progress in achieving the cooperative agreement’s stated goals and objectives. This audit report makes one recommendation regarding the timely completion of the award projects. 2 tables and appended details of the audit’s objective, scope, and methodology; RAND and OJP responses to the audit’s draft report; and OIG’s analysis of these responses and a summary of actions necessary to close the recommendation
