NASA OIG Audits Highlights

Highlights taken from the Semiannual Report to Congress for the period which ended March 31, 2005, include:

Sample Audits:

  • Our audit Final Memorandum on Government Mandatory Inspection for Solid Rocket Booster Bolt Catchers (IG-04-024) was conducted as part of the OIG's continuing assessment of NASA's Return to Flight activities. We found that the Defense Contract Management Agency did not perform mandatory hardware inspections on bolt catchers used in Space Shuttle operations.

  • Our audit Final Memorandum on Management of NASA Procurement Workforce (IG-05-002) identified management control weaknesses for ensuring that designated Contracting Officer's Technical Representatives (COTRs) received the training required to carry out their delegated duties and responsibilities.

  • Our audit Final Memorandum on Audit of Network Perimeter Security at [a NASA Center] (IG-05-009) reviewed the Center process implemented in 2003 for approving and tracking computers which have access outside the Center's network. We identified three opportunities that should strengthen the process and reduce the risks inherent in allowing external access.

  • Our audit Information Assurance Controls in [a System] at [a NASA Center] (IG-05-011) determined whether the Center implemented adequate security and data integrity controls for the system. The audit found that the Center needs to improve controls to comply with the Federal, NASA, and Center IT security requirements.

  • Our audit Final Memorandum Review of Organizational Structure and Management of Information Technology and Information Technology Security Services at NASA (IG-05-013) found that NASA's IT organizational structure, which facilitates management of IT resources and IT security, was different at each NASA Center.
