ABSTRACT

Audit of the Office of Justice Programs' Monitoring and Oversight of Recovery Act and Non-Recovery Act Grants   [open pdf - 12MB]

"The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) is the Department of Justice's (Department) largest granting agency. Its grant programs are intended to improve the nation's capacity to prevent and control crime, improve the criminal and juvenile justice systems, increase knowledge about crime and related issues, and assist crime victims. For fiscal years (FY) 2008 through 2010, OJP made almost 14,000 grant awards, totaling more than $7.7 billion to state and local law enforcement and community organizations. This included more than 4,000 grants, totaling about $2.8 billion, under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act)." This Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General (OIG) report evaluates "the adequacy of OJP's plans and efforts for monitoring and overseeing Recovery Act and non-Recovery Act grants. The scope of this audit covered OJP's grant monitoring and oversight efforts planned or conducted in FYs 2009 and 2010. Because OJP shares some monitoring responsibilities with the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) and the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), the Department's other principal granting agencies, this report also refers to those agencies."
