"Section 809(g) of the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act of 2004 requires us to evaluate and report annually on the effectiveness of the cargo inspection targeting system for international intermodal cargo containers.

In addition, we reviewed whether recommendations contained in our previous report on ATS, Audit of Targeting Oceangoing Cargo Containers, OIG-05-26, dated July 2005, were implemented."
