Our report contains 15 recommendations directed to the post and headquarters. For the post, our recommendations included that the post store and dispose of medical waste and controlled substances according to policy; that the post strengthen its controls for managing imprest funds and collecting overpayments; and that the post ensure bills of collection are issued in a timely manner.

  • Audit

This evaluation focused on the appropriateness of programming, training, and evaluation; the adequacy of Volunteer support; and the effectiveness of post leadership and management. This report contains 12 recommendations, which, if implemented, should strengthen post operations and correct the deficiencies detailed in the report.

  • Evaluation

We found that inadequate controls resulted in non-compliance with agency policies and guidance from the Office of Management and Budget. To reduce the risk of fraudulent behavior and financial abuse, the agency needs to improve its policies and procedures, training, and oversight provided to the purchase card program. By not maintaining sufficient controls to assure compliance with Peace Corps and Federal requirements, the Peace Corps put itself at risk for fraudulent behavior and financial abuse. We found several weaknesses caused by insufficient controls: inadequate policies and procedures, lack of required training, inadequate oversight, and inadequate use of the available data analytic tools. This report makes six recommendations to help enhance controls over purchase card transactions.
