SEPTEMBER 19, 2000

The US General Accounting Office said a $40 million software project aimed at fixing the trust system is behind schedule and faces management problems.

The GAO report however, said the government is making progress on reforming the trust system. But it pointed out that problems in accounting, record protection, and security still exist.

The report "Indian Trust Funds: Improvements Made in Acquisition of New Asset and Accounting System But Significant Risks Remain" was published September 15.
