Dear Colonel Davidson:
    We have made a review for the settlement of the accounts of
certifying  officers  at the Kentucky State Headquarters, Selective
Service System, Frarakfort, Kentucky for the period January 3, 1965
to December 31, 1970. Our review, completed in February 1971, was made
pursuant to the Budget and Accounting Act, 1921 (3-t. U.S.C, 53) and the
Accounting and Auditing Act of I.950 (31 U,S,C, 67).
    Each agency has the basic responsibility   for proper accounting
and internal control to provide assurance of the legality,     propriety,
and correctness of disbur%ements and collection    of public funds, Since
the accounting function for your office was transferred     to the Regional
Center, Atlanta, Georgia, effective   January 1, 1971, our review of the
accounting and internal controls was limited.     Xowever, we made such
tests of transactions  as we deemed appropriiate and considered the
report of the most recent audit by the National Readquarters Field
Auditor in setting the scope of our review.     We d5.d not examine program-
type operations.
   Our review disclosed that the administrative      procedures and controls
were generally satisfactory,
    In accordance with 8 GAO13 the records of transactions  through
December 32, 1970 may be transmitted to the Federal Records Center for
storage in accordance tith your records management program.

   Three copies of this report are being sent to the Director,          Selective
Service System, Washington, D.C.
    We wish to acknowledge the cooperation   given our representatives
during the review,
                                                  Very truly   yours,

                                              &y&&.L,;,( d~~&c  &IL&+
