Letter to US House and Senate Committees on Armed Services from Joseph A. Christoff, Director, International Affairs and Trade, addressing the FY 2003 Annual Report on the Cooperative Threat Reduction Program. Letter states that a review of the fiscal year 2003 annual CTR report compared it with the assessment of the 2002 annual report. Findings include that the 2003 report(1) did not clearly set forth the amount of CTR funding to be provided over the 5-year term of its plan, (2) did not include key federal strategic planning elements in the 5-year plan, (3) described the procedures CTR officials used to account for the assistance provided but in some instances asserted a more rigorous methodology than what was actually used, and (4) incorporated some but not all prior GAO recommendations.
