"The objective of this audit was to examine OJP's [Office of Justice Programs] design and management of its three prisoner reentry grant programs. The scope of our audit covered the development of the SVORI [Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative] grant program in FY 2002 and also covered subsequent OJP reentry grant programs through January 2010. We performed audit work at OJP headquarters, including at the offices of the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ). In addition, we interviewed officials at the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) and the Department of Labor (DOL) to assess federal reentry efforts. We reviewed laws, regulations, and other guidance regarding OJP's reentry program grants funding, design, management, administration, award activities, policies, and procedures. In addition, we reviewed documentation related to the reentry grant programs, including program solicitations, grant award documentation, and monitoring documentation relating to grants awarded between FYs 2002 through 2009."
