Audit of NASA’s Cooperative Agreement Awarded to Rockwell Collins
NASA awards approximately $846 million in grants and cooperative agreements annually and faces the ongoing challenge of ensuring the Agency administers these awards appropriately and recipients accomplish stated goals and objectives.
In September 2011, the NASA Office of Inspector General (OIG) reported that NASA did not have an adequate system of controls in place to ensure proper administration and management of its grant program, and that as a result some grant funds had not been used for their intended purposes.
Following publication of that report, we began a series of audits examining specific NASA grants and cooperative agreements. In this letter, we present the results of our review of a $2.45 million cooperative agreement NASA awarded to Rockwell Collins, Government Systems (Rockwell Collins).
