The DON FIP team’s primary objectives are the identification and implementation of corrective actions to resolve established deficiencies related to the DON Annual Financial Statements and the preparation, documentation, and validation of processes, data, and systems that materially affect the DON Annual Financial Statements. A dedicated team within the Financial Management Office maintains the DON FIP and coordinates execution of the plan.
