Superfund Financial Activities at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences

In our review of Superfund financial transactions at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) for FY 2009, we found that the transactions were allowable, allocable, and reasonable in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. NIEHS receives Superfund funding to train people who handle hazardous waste and manage hazardous waste facilities and to conduct research on the effects of hazardous substances on human health. We conducted this audit pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, which requires the inspector general of a Federal organization with Superfund responsibilities to audit all uses of the Superfund. Our report contained no recommendations.
