Abstract : GAO(Government Accounting Office) conducted a review of 22 federal agencies' efforts to implement the Federal Managers' Financial Integrity Act of 1982. The act was intended to help reduce fraud, waste, and abuse across the spectrum of federal government operations through annual agency self-assessments of their internal controls and accounting systems. This report highlights the progress made and problems encountered by the Department of Defense in its first year of experience with this new act. The report focuses on Defense's efforts to evaluate internal controls, review accounting systems, and improve the evaluation processes as a result of identified problems.
