Annotation: The findings and methodology are presented for the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG’s) audit of the Office of Justice Programs’ (OJP’s) Office on Violence Against Women’s (OVW‘s) grant awards to the Seneca-Cayuga Nation (SCN) in Grove, OK, for the development and improvement of programs that address violence against women and for sex offender registration and notification programs that support implementation of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).
Abstract: The SCN awards included in this audit were funded through two different programs. Grant numbers 2011-TW-AX-0031 and 2014-TW-AX-0050 were funded under the Grant to Indian Tribal Governments Program. Grant numbers 2012-AW-BX-0022 and 2014-AW-BX-0058 were funded under the Support for Adam Walsh Act Implementation Grant Program. The objectives of this audit 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 award, as well as to determine whether the grantee had made adequate progress toward program goals and objectives. The audit found non-compliance and deficiencies in areas reviewed, including indirect-costs budget management, compliance with special conditions, and direct-cost expenditures. Questioned costs amounted to $178,395. The report presents 13 recommendations to the OVW and OJP that are intended to guide remedies for addressing grantee non-compliance and deficiencies. 3 tables and appended schedule of dollar-related findings; audit objectives and methodology; and SCN, OJP, and OVW responses to the audit’s draft report
