Performance Results Were Not Measured, Reported, or Supported - (ADS) 203.3.5.1

The Government Accountability Office’s Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government states that “all transactions and other significant events need to be clearly documented and the documentation should be readily available for examination.”

According to USAID’s Automated Directives System (ADS) 203.3.5.1, “Data Quality Standards,” for data to be reliable, there should be consistent methods of collection and analysis over time so that if the data collection and analysis were repeated by different analysts, they would come to the same conclusion.

General Recommendations

  • Establish mechanisms to verify the contractor’s significant reported results.
  • Increase program oversight to verify that the contractor focuses on expected results.
