This final audit report found that the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) generally administered the fund according to the Superfund legislation. However, corrective action is needed to ensure that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and ATSDR meet all reporting requirements of agencies with which ATSDR has an interagency agreement. Also, CDC should implement procedures to ensure timely submission of minority business utilization reports and follow up with the Office of the Secretary to ensure that the report is submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency. The Public Health Service concurred with our recommendations and provided a plan for corrective action.
