From the Executive Description: "The U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General (OIG), Audit Division, has completed a follow-up audit of the Methamphetamine Initiative Grants awarded by the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) to the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics (MBN). In December 2005, the OIG completed an audit of the MBN's performance under COPS' Methamphetamine Grants awarded to the MBN to assist state and local law enforcement agencies in reducing the production, distribution, and use of methamphetamine. Our 2005 audit found the MBN to be in material non-compliance with the terms and conditions of the COPS Methamphetamine Initiative grant guidelines. The MBN's grant drawdowns could not be reconciled to the financial system reports or accounting records. As a result of the non-compliance, the OIG questioned $1,968,775 in grant payments received by the MBN and recommended an additional $98,127 in funds put to better use. To evaluate the actions taken by the MBN to address the recommendations from our 2005 audit, we performed this follow-up audit on the MBN's management of the 2008 and 2009 COPS' Methamphetamine grants awarded to the MBN since our original audit. We also audited the Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Bureau of Justice Assistance American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) subgrants awarded to the MBN."
