Abstract:

The United States controls the export of dual-use commodities and munitions for national security and foreign policy purposes under the authority of several laws, primarily the Export Administration Act of 1979 and the Arms Export Control Act of 1976. Commodities are subject to the licensing requirements contained in the Export Administration Regulations for dual-use commodities or the International Traffic in Arms Regulations for munitions. From 2000 through 2006, 9 Offices of Inspector General OIGs participated in issuing 9 interagency reports and 40 agency-specific reports on U.S. export controls. The OIGs made 273 recommendations in these 49 reports to improve Federal export control policies and procedures. This report provides the status of Federal managers implementation of those recommendations. Objective The main objective of the 2007 review was to determine whether management effectively addressed recommendations in previous reports required by the National Defense Authorization Act.
