Excerpt
Excerpt: The Department of State’s Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, Demining, and Related Programs (NADR) account funds programs that are designed to advance U.S. national interests in a variety of areas. Those programs address the spread of weapons of mass destruction, assist other countries in fighting terrorism, and support humanitarian assistance programs such as demining. Administration budget requests for fiscal year 2005 include $415 million for these programs. You expressed interest in learning about whether the major programs funded through the account are being implemented in accord with their legal authorizations and in the extent to which these programs use experts hired on a contractual basis. In response, we determined (1) the legal authorizations for the programs and the extent to which the types of activities funded are in accord with program authorizations and (2) the extent to which program management and project implementation use experts hired on a contractual basis.
