Federal agency accounting systems
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO monitored the Bureau of Indian Affairs' (BIA) conversion to a new accounting system.
GAO found that BIA: (1) prepared a system implementation and conversion plan; (2) experienced system testing and training delays, primarily due to a lack of computers and an acceptable telecommunications system; (3) believed that it could meet its planned implementation date and would only delay implementation if it experienced additional problems; and (4) planned to use a telecommunications system other than the one directed by the Department of the Interior because the systems were not compatible.
