EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

This final report discloses the results of our audit of Superfund financial activities at the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) for Fiscal Year 1997. The ATSDR receives Superfund monies through an interagency agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency to carry out health related activities mandated by Superfund legislation. From October 1, 1996 through September 30, 1997, ATSDR's obligations of Superfund monies totaled about $63.9 million and disbursements totaled about $58.8 million of funds obligated during and prior to that year. Our audit disclosed minor problems, but showed that, in general, ATSDR administered Superfund monies in accordance with applicable laws, regulations, and other requirements.
