We determined that DHS’ internal controls over its Digital Accountability and Transparency (DATA) Act processes were not sufficient to support the submission of accurate, complete and timely spending data for FY 2017/Q2. Although DHS met the mandated deadline for submitting its quarterly spending data to the Department of Treasury, we identified issues concerning the completeness and accuracy of its first data submission that hinders the quality and usefulness of the information. We recommended that DHS strengthens its existing controls and applies additional controls over its DATA Act processes. We made six recommendations that will help strengthen DHS’ controls to ensure accurate, complete, and timely spending data. DHS concurred with 5 of the recommendations.
