Assessment of USAID’s Purchase Card Program Showed Low Risk of Improper Purchases and Payments in Fiscal Year 2020

Audit Report
Report Number

The Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012 (the Charge Card Act), Public Law 112-194, requires OIG to conduct periodic risk assessments of agency charge card programs to assess the risk of illegal, improper, or erroneous purchases and payments.  We contracted with the independent certified public accounting firm of GKA P.C. Certified Public Accountants & Consultants to conduct a risk assessment of USAID’s purchase card program fiscal year 2020 and determine whether the results justify performing an audit in compliance with the Charge Card Act.  The audit firm concluded that the overall risk was low for the purchase card program and that the results did not warrant an audit.
