Abstract:

This report responds to your request that we review the Departments management controls for three types of sensitive excess items-firearms, items that are protected for national security reasons such as those with precision guidance technologies, and pharmaceuticals. Specifically, we evaluated compliance with internal control procedures for 1 safeguarding excess firearms, items with national security implications, and pharmaceuticals and 2 recording the removal of such items from inventory records. Controlling these items is particularly important because they include military technologies and capabilities and are vulnerable to theft.
