Abstract:

The audit was a result of a DoD Hotline allegation that command officials from the Office of Naval Research channeled 5 percent of the congressionally authorized program funds into reserve accounts to fund projects that Congress did not approve. Specifically, the Hofline allegation concerned FY 1994 funds totalling approximately 80 million. The Hotline allegation also stipulated that management required project managers in the Office of Naval Research to falsify reports to Congress regarding expenditures against approved program elements. The Hotline allegation also stated that Office of Naval Research management executives improperly established and managed these reserve accounts to fund projects the Office of Naval Research management decmed important.
