The resulting management letter contains 16 observations related to internal controls and other operational matters for management’s consideration. KPMG LLP noted internal control deficiencies and the need for improvement in several processes including control over settlement assets; the trade compliance measurement review process; review of Federal Employee Compensation Act Claims; controls in the seized and forfeited property inventory process; and reviews over the Performance and Accountability Report. These deficiencies did not meet the criteria to be reported in the Independent Auditors' Report on U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s FY 2015 Consolidated Financial Statements, dated March 21, 2016.These observations are intended to improve internal control or result in other operating efficiencies.
