MEMORANDUM FOR:               Denali Commission Commissioners

FROM:                         Mark H. Zabarsky
                              Principal Assistant Inspector General for Audit and Evaluation

SUBJECT:                      Review of the Commission’s FY 2017 Compliance with Improper
                              Payment Requirements

We are initiating a review to determine the Commission’s compliance with the Improper
Payments Information Act of 2002, as amended. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB)
issued implementing guidance in the form of OMB Circular A-123, Appendix C, as revised by
OMB Memorandum M-15-02, which requires federal inspectors general to review improper
payment reporting annually.

We will evaluate the accuracy and completeness of the Commission’s reporting in the Denali
Commission FY 2017 Agency Financial Report and, if applicable, its performance in reducing and
recapturing improper payments. To comply with legislative requirements, this review must be
completed within 180 days of publication of the agency financial report.

I will be in contact with you soon to schedule an entrance conference, at which time we will
discuss the review’s scope and methodology in greater detail. If you have any questions
regarding this review, please contact me at (202) 482-3884. We thank you in advance for your
cooperation during this review.
