This final audit report points out that, with the exception of minor irregularities due to clerical errors, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences generally administered the fund in accordance with Superfund legislation. However, we noted internal control weaknesses involving: (1) grantee audits; (2) preparing the budget; and (3) submitting reimbursement billings to the Environmental Protection Agency. The Public Health Service generally concurred with our findings and recommendations.
