Inspection of the Bureau of Consular Affairs, Office of the Comptroller   [open pdf - 423KB]

" [1] In its short history, the Bureau of Consular Affairs, Office of the Comptroller (CA/C) has been plagued by insufficient and unevenly trained staff, interpersonal difficulties, and an uncertain mission. [2] Some of the roles and responsibilities of CA/C, particularly regarding contracting oversight and management controls policy, are not sufficiently clear to stakeholders and employees. [3] The over $2.5 billion Border Security Program (BSP) does not have a designated program manager; this deficiency diffuses responsibility for program oversight and administration. All findings and recommendations in this report are based on conditions observed during the on-site review and the standards and policies then in effect. The report does not comment at length on areas where the OIG [Office of Inspector General] team did not identify problems that need to be corrected. The inspection took place in Washington, DC, between January 14 and March 15, 2013."
