Awards and Contracts

Developmentwork.Net maintains a searchable database of audit reports. The purpose of the "Audit Database Project" is to provide a systemic overview of lessons learned from hundreds of programs that have been funded by USAID and MCC.

The audit reports and the recommendations are a useful resource for compliance and risk management officers with reference to ADS, CFR, AIDAR, etc. The repository of recommendations for project compliance with USAID regulations is a practical tool to prepare Chiefs of Party, Program Managers, COTRs and others for OIG audits.
