sippi    State   Headquarters,        for fiscal     years I.969 and 1970, and the
eight    month period      ended February        28, 1971.     The review     was made
pursuant      to the Budget       and Accounting      Act, 1921 (31 U.S,C.       53) and
the Accounting       and Auditing        Act of 1950 (3L U.S.C.       67) a

         Our review       was directed          primarily        toward the evaluation                 of
administrative           procedures         and controls         over the disbursement                 of

of the certifying             officers,        and included          such tests      of financial
transactions          as we considered            appropriate.           As part of the review,
we considered          the results          of the last        audit      (completed      March 1969)
performed        by the Field          Auditor      of the Selective           Service        System,
