Monitoring and Oversight Needs Improvement - ADS 596.3

ADS 596.3.1 stipulates that USAID managers and staff must develop and implement cost-effective management controls for results-oriented management to reasonably ensure that assets are safeguarded against loss and unauthorized use.

Furthermore, the ADS states that management control activities must be both effective and efficient in accomplishing the Agency’s control objectives. A key control activity is adequate documentation of internal control, of which monitoring is a central component.

General Recommendations

  • Develop written procedures to document, track, and take corrective action on all deficiencies identified.

  • Verify that material internal control weaknesses identified are corrected and document the results.
