PROBLEMS & CORRECTIVE ACTION PLAN (CAP) 
 
Unmonitored resources 
 
Computer sent to the Organized Crime Section in Valka/Daugavpils 
Region. Specific computer cannot be located: This Crime Section 
received donations in the late 90's and it is unclear to the current 
staff which computer we would be referring to. Post was unable to 
track down the individual with who we worked to make this donation 
(he has retired) and therefore, was not able to verify where the 
computer is currently located. Post believes, however that the 
computer is no longer in use because the technology is obsolete. 
 
¶B.  Repair and Maintenance of commodities - n/a 
¶C.  Lack of Use and Misuse of Commodities - n/a 
¶D.  Disposal of commodities - n/a 
¶E.  Other Problems - n/a
