Audit Report 05-32

Office of the Inspector General


Statement on Internal Controls


In planning and performing our audit of the Department of Justiceís policy on the use of classified information in portable computers, we did not assess the Departmentís internal controls over the processing of classified information on portable computers. Our audit was more limited than would be necessary to express an opinion of the Departmentís internal control structure over classified information as a whole.

Reportable conditions, as defined by the Government Auditing Standards, involve matters coming to our attention relating to deficiencies that, in our judgment, could adversely affect the Departmentís controls over the processing of classified information in portable computers. During this audit, we did not identify any reportable conditions that could adversely affect the Departmentís controls over the processing of classified information.

This statement is intended solely for information purposes and use by the Departmentís management in their development of policy over the processing of classified information in portable computers. This usage restriction is not intended to limit the distribution of this report, which is a matter of public record.
