I'm trying to automatically select the drop down list item....keeps bombing out

 System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
private void usp_CheckNamedUsers_Selected(Object sender, SqlDataSourceStatusEventArgs e)
      {
		// grab our return value from the stored procedure
        string str_Test = e.Command.Parameters["@bit_ReturnValue"].Value.ToString();

        // if this user doesn't exist in the DB direct them to the new user page
        if(str_Test != "True")
          Response.Redirect("/Recruitment/UserInformation.aspx");

        if (!IsPostBack)
        {
            DataView dvw_DataView_usp_Requisition_SELECT = (DataView)usp_Requisition_SELECT.Select(DataSourceSelectArguments.Empty);
            foreach (DataRowView drv_DataRowView in dvw_DataView_usp_Requisition_SELECT)
            {
                // textboxes and labels  
                // cal_RequestDate.Text           = drv_DataRowView["dtm_RequestDate"].ToString();
                txt_JobTitleQueued.Text = drv_DataRowView["vch_JobTitleID"].ToString();
                txt_HiringManagerQueued.Text = drv_DataRowView["int_L1NamedUserID"].ToString();
                txt_LocationQueued.Text = drv_DataRowView["int_LocationID"].ToString();

                txt_FundSourceSplit2.Text = drv_DataRowView["vch_PercentSplit2"].ToString();
                txt_FundSourceSplit3.Text = drv_DataRowView["vch_PercentSplit3"].ToString();
                txt_FundSourceSplit4.Text = drv_DataRowView["vch_PercentSplit4"].ToString();
                txt_RecruitmentDelayed.Text = drv_DataRowView["vch_RecruitmentDelayed"].ToString();

                txt_HowWorkAccomplished.Text = drv_DataRowView["vch_HowWorkAccomplished"].ToString();


            }
        }
        ddl_DepartmentLocation.Items.FindByValue(txt_LocationQueued.Text.ToString()).Selected = true;
      }


 <asp:DropDownList 
                            ID="ddl_DepartmentLocation"
