This final audit report points out that Public Health Service (PHS) policies and procedures do not assure that all programs and missions are identified for management control reviews as required by the Federal Managers' Financial Integrity Act (FMFIA). As a result, audits have disclosed many programs not subjected to the management oversight intended by this law. An improved process should provide reasonable assurance that all major management control weaknesses have been identified and corrected through effective FMFIA compliance. Our report contains recommendations for improving this process.
