Internal Control Weaknesses at the Department of Homeland Security, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Government Organization, Efficiency, and Financial Management of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, United States House of Representatives, One Hundred and Twelfth Congress, First Session, October 27, 2011   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the opening statement of Todd Russell Platts: "The purpose of today's hearing is to evaluate the effectiveness and security of financial systems at the Department of Homeland Security. DHS is one of the largest Federal departments and spent $56.4 billion on its operations in 2010. Because of the size and importance of DHS, it is crucial that we have strong financial management systems and that data is properly protected. However, in 2010, independent auditors found numerous weaknesses in DHS' financial management and information technology security systems. And this hearing will examine the results of that audit and DHS' progress in resolving the problems in its financial management systems." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Todd Russell Platts, Peggy Sherry, Robert West, John E. McCoy II, Gerald E. Connolly, and Edolphus Towns.
