The Office of Inspector General (OIG) forwarded to NASA management an Ernst & Young LLP (E&Y) report containing information technology findings and recommendations associated with NASA’s Integrated Enterprise Management Program (IEMP). E&Y performed procedures to assess the effectiveness of the information technology control environment (general and applica-tion controls) as part of its audit of NASA’s Fiscal Year 2009 Financial Statements (IG-10-002, expected to be available over the Internet by November 16, 2009). Under the Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990, NASA’s financial statements are to be audited in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards. The E&Y report included findings noted during the current year and the status of FY 2008 findings and recommendations. E&Y noted that the NASA Enterprise Applications Competency Center (NEACC), which operates and maintains many of the Agency’s enterprise business systems, including the financial system, has taken significant steps to resolve a majority of the FY 2008 findings. E&Y reported four findings for FY 2009, three of which had been resolved as of September 30, 2009. NASA management concurred with E&Y’s recommendation related to the open finding and will take appropriate corrective action.

The report contains NASA Information Technology/Internal Systems Data that is not routinely released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). To submit a FOIA request, see the online guide.
