Abstract : GAO 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 Health and Human Services in its first year of experience with this new act. The report focuses on the evaluation of internal controls, review of accounting systems, and improvements being made by the Department as a result of identified problems. GAO proposed, and the Department agreed to take, several actions for further improvement.
