1. Here's the story about it...
A new report from the Government Accountability Office finds that more than 100 laptop computers purchased with cards that the Homeland Security Department issued after hurricanes Katrina and Rita hit the Gulf Coast last year are missing and presumed stolen.

According to GAO, the computers purchased by employees of DHS' Federal Emergency Management Agency had a value of $300,000. More than 20 printers worth $84,000 are also missing and presumed stolen, the report states.

Another three laptop computers purchased by the Coast Guard are also missing and presumed stolen.

A weak control environment and breakdowns in key controls left DHS vulnerable to fraud and abuse, states the report, prepared with the participation of DHS Office of the Inspector General.

A draft Purchase Card Manual that contained effective control procedures to prevent such incidents was never finalized, the report states. The watchdog agency faulted DHS chief financial officer for a lack of leadership in resolving disagreements over the manuals implementation.
