18 pages
This audit of the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Justice Programs' (OJP's) cooperative agreement with the Pennsylvania State University's (PSU's) Sexual Assault Forensic Examination and Training Center examined whether costs claimed under the award were allowable, supported, and in accordance with applicable laws, regulations, guidelines, and terms and conditions of the award, as well as to determine whether PSU demonstrated adequate progress toward achieving program goals and objectives.
The purposes of the OJP award were to develop or improve a statewide telemedicine program to deliver expert sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) guidance and support to medical professionals conducting sexual assault forensic exams in state correctional facilities, institutions of higher education, and rural and tribal communities. The audit determined that PSU demonstrated adequate progress toward the award's stated goals and objective, and it did not identify significant concerns regarding compliance with the award conditions related to personnel and fringe-benefit costs, supply costs, consultant and contractual costs, travel costs, and indirect costs. Neither did the audit identify deficiencies in compliance with the requirements for drawdowns of federal funds and financial reporting. This report does not offer any recommendations as a result of the audit. 1 table and appended supplementary information
