Abstract:

The objectives of our review were to 1 evaluate FEMAs and DODs positions and concerns to determine whether they warranted revising any of the findings, conclusions, and recommendations in our January 11, 1982, report and 2 identify new issues that we believe must be addressed and resolved in reevaluating the need for the stockpile silver and in exploring alternative disposal methods. Our scope and methodology were limited primarily to comparing FEMAs and DODs comments with the information included in our previous report and identifying and evaluating legislative and executive actions that have occurred. We also interviewed a number of Federal officials and representatives of the domestic mining industry. Our review was performed in accordance with generally accepted government audit standards.
