Office of Inspector General audit report on ``The U.S. Department of Energy`s Working Capital Fund``

Office of Inspector General audit report on ``The U.S. Department of Energy`s Working Capital Fund``

Date: October 1, 1998
Creator: unknown
Description: The Department established the Working Capital Fund (Fund) in January 1996 as a financial management tool for charging the costs of common services provided at Headquarters to Departmental program offices. Prior to establishing the Fund, the Office of Human Resources and Administration (HR) paid most of the costs of these services from the Departmental Administration account without attempting to allocate the costs back of the programs using the services. Since the Fund`s implementation, Department program offices have made periodic advance payments to the Fund from their program direction accounts and are then charged for the services they consume. The Department`s objectives in establishing the Fund were to increase efficiency of the Department`s operations, improve management of administrative services through the use of flexible and business-like finance methods, and provide an accurate full cost budget for programs and activities. The costs of the services administered by the Fund are expected to total about $80 million in Fiscal Year 1998, which excludes Federal salaries and some other indirect charges incurred by HR. Although the Fund is making progress in meeting its objectives, additional management attention could result in further cost reductions to the Department. Despite these achievements, the author identified three areas ...

An Evaluation of the Effects of a Pay for Performance Plan on Productivity of Employees of a Professional Services Firm

An Evaluation of the Effects of a Pay for Performance Plan on Productivity of Employees of a Professional Services Firm

Date: December 2002
Creator: Porter, Melanie
Description: This study examined the effects of a productivity-indexed pay for performance plan in a professional services firm. The new plan was implemented after productivity decreased under an existing plan. Performance of staff and senior level accountants was analyzed across three departments under a three-year baseline and a two-year intervention period. Several measures of productivity indicated that the intervention was effective in improving production, especially for employees with full annual workloads. Percentage of salaries earned in incentives was comparable for both the baseline and intervention periods. Possible explanations for trends in the data, weaknesses in the plan, and implications for future research are also discussed.

U.S. Department of Energy Office of Inspector General report on audit of acquisition of scientific research at Ames Laboratory

U.S. Department of Energy Office of Inspector General report on audit of acquisition of scientific research at Ames Laboratory

Date: July 14, 1995
Creator: unknown
Description: The Department awards grants and cooperative agreements and contracts to sponsor scientific research at colleges and universities. Compared to cooperative agreements, contracts, particularly management and operating contracts, often impose duplicative and/or unnecessary administrative and compliance burdens on a college or university. Since the Department bears the cost of those additional burdens, the authors audited the cost effectiveness of the Department`s sponsorship of research at Ames Laboratory under a management and operating contract with Iowa State University. The research conducted at Ames is of the type that Congress intended to be sponsored by assistance agreements, rather than contracts. Moreover, they found the contract for managing and operating Ames Laboratory caused micromanagement and unnecessary costs, most of which could have been avoided with a cooperative agreement. However, after completion of the field work, the Department announced initiatives to reduce or eliminate some compliance and oversight burdens associated with management and operating contracts, but did not opt to sponsor research under cooperative agreements. The authors are unable to determine the monetary impact because the initiatives have not been implemented. Nevertheless, they continue to believe that cooperative agreements, having fewer unique bureaucratic requirements, offer the potential for reducing administrative overhead.

Audit of the management of the cooperative agreement with Texas to fund the Amarillo National Resource Center for Plutonium

Audit of the management of the cooperative agreement with Texas to fund the Amarillo National Resource Center for Plutonium

Date: August 23, 1996
Creator: unknown
Description: To address disposition of special nuclear material taken from dismantled nuclear weapons, DOE in Nov. 1994 agreed to provide financial assistance to the State of Texas to establish the Amarillo National Resource Center for Plutonium. The Center sponsored research on storage, disposition, potential utilization, and transportation of Pu, high explosives, and other materials generated from nuclear weapons disassembly. Objective of the audit was to determine if DOE provided adequate management, direction, and control to ensure that the Center`s activities are beneficial to DOE and do not duplicate the work at DOE`s national laboratories. DOE has had limited involvement in the Center. The Center`s projects identified by the Office of Fissile Materials Disposition as supporting Defense Programs activities have not been reviewed. Review revealed that DOE funded about $1.8 million during the first two years of Center`s operation for research which duplicated research conducted by DOE`s national laboratories. This duplication occurred because responsibility for technical review was assigned at a level without authority to fully coordinate review of the Center`s research projects with DOE`s national laboratories. Recommendations are given.

Department of Homeland Security: Financial Management Challenges

Date: July 8, 2004
Creator: United States. Government Accountability Office.
Description: Testimony issued by the Government Accountability Office with an abstract that begins "The Homeland Security Act of 2002 brought together 22 agencies to create a new cabinet-level department focusing on reducing U.S. vulnerability to terrorist attacks, and minimizing damages and assisting in recovery from attacks that do occur. GAO has previously reported on the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) financial management challenges and key elements necessary for reform. DHS continues to be faced with significant financial management challenges, including addressing existing internal control weaknesses and integrating redundant inherited financial management systems. Additionally, DHS is the largest entity in the federal government that is not subject to the Chief Financial Officers (CFO) Act of 1990 or the Federal Financial Management Improvement Act (FFMIA) of 1996. In light of these conditions, Congress asked GAO to testify on the financial management challenges facing DHS."

What Did the Client Say? Auditor Memory of a Client Inquiry: a Study of Encoding Style and Note Taking

What Did the Client Say? Auditor Memory of a Client Inquiry: a Study of Encoding Style and Note Taking

Date: May 2015
Creator: Vinson, Jeremy M.
Description: Client inquiry is a fundamental procedure for gathering audit evidence. Since inquiries are not audio- or video-recorded in practice, auditor memory is vital to the accuracy of evidence gathered in this manner. Due to the potential for error during memory encoding and retrieval, the effect of memory on judgment, and the cognitive complexity of conducting a face-to-face inquiry, examining factors affecting auditor memory of client inquiries is important. In this dissertation, I examine two factors likely to affect auditor memory of a client inquiry. First, encoding style is a low-level cognitive function representing how much stimuli an individual perceives before applying prior knowledge (schemata) to assist with encoding to long-term memory, affecting information noticed and remembered. Differences in auditors’ encoding style may explain variance in memory accuracy of evidence gathered from a client inquiry. Second, audit professionals often make hand-written or typed notes during client inquiries, and subsequently review the notes, which may affect memory. To address these issues, I first gather interview evidence from six professional auditors to determine how practicing auditors plan, prepare for, conduct, and document evidence from client inquiries. I then develop and execute a video-based experiment with 33 senior auditor participants, 23 masters-level accounting students, ...
