We have made a review for the settlement of accounts of the Southeast Region accountable officers, Internal Revenue Service, Atlanta, Georgia. Our review, completed in June 1971, was made pursuant to the Budget and Accounting Act, 1921 (31 U,S,C. 53), and the AccountLng and Auditing Act of 1950 (31 u.s.c, 67). Our review included an examination of adminlstratlve procedures and controls relatzng to the disbursement and receipt of funds and such tests of lndlvldual transactions through June 30, 1970, as we deemed approprrate, We also revrewed the Regional Inspector's audrt report dated Aprzl 12, 1971, and the related worksng papers on the audit, We did not examine program-type actsvlties, nor did we conduct a payroll audit. We found that the procedures and controls were generally satrsfactory, except for some weaknesses In (1) the tlmellness of follow-up action to recover amounts due the Government from vendors; (2) admlnlstratlon and verlflcatxon of travel claims, and (3) determrnlng the validity of the purchase of an association membership. We discussed the weaknesses in detaxl wzth repre- sentatlves of your office and corrective action was taken or promised on most of the matters discussed. Copies of this letter are being sent to the Assistant Commlssloner (Admlnlstratlon), and to the Reglonal Inspector. We wish to acknowledge the courtesies and cooperation given our representatives dursng this review.
