Summary
We reviewed information system general controls over the financial systems that process and account for the financial activities of the District of Columbia Highway Trust Fund as part of our annual required audit of the Funds financial statement for fiscal year 1999. Effective information system general controls are essential to ensure that Fund financial information is adequately protected from inadvertent or deliberate misuse, fraudulent use, improper disclosure, and destruction. This report discusses computer security weaknesses at (1) the Department of Public Works (DPW), which is responsible for processing, accounting for, and reporting on the Funds financial activities and (2) the Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO) and the Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO), which are also responsible for information system general controls that could affect Fund financial systems. Because of the serious and pervasive nature of these weaknesses, we reported information system controls as a material weakness in the Fund s financial audit report for fiscal year 1999. 2
