The Office of the Inspector General for USAID and several other agencies is responsible for detecting and preventing fraud, waste, abuse, and violations of law and to promote economy, efficiency and effectiveness in the operation of programs sponsored by the US government.
Major responsibilities of the OIG are to detect and prevent fraud, waste, abuse, and violations of law and to promote economy, efficiency and effectiveness in the operations of the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the United States African Development Foundation, and the Inter-American Foundation. Upon request, the OIG also provides oversight services to the Overseas Private Investment Corporation.
The OIG fulfills these responsibilities by conducting audits, investigations, inspections, and other reviews. We also keep the Congress informed regarding the findings and recommendations of our reviews. Accomplishments are reported in semiannual reports to the Congress as prescribed in the OIG Act. We strive for excellence in program integrity and performance.
The Audit Database Project and Repository of Recommendations
As part of its mandate, the Office of the Inspector General publishes annually a review plan detailing planned audits of US Government sponsored programs (USAID, MCC, ADF and the IAF).
Based on OIG's annual review plans, Developmentwork.Net maintains a searchable database of audit reports.
Based on the database, a repository of recommendations for project compliance with USAID regulations is maintained. The purpose of the repository is to provide a systemic overview of lessons learned from the technical audits of hundreds of programs that have been funded by USAID and MCC.
The repository of recommendations for project compliance with USAID regulations is a practical educational tool to prepare Chiefs of Party, Program Managers, COTRs and others for OIG audits. The OIG often refers to specific regulatory requirements (ADS, CFR, AIDAR, etc.) and addresses remedies when non-compliance with the regulations is observed.
The recommendations in the repository are general of nature and not project (management) specific. Recommendations in the repository do not refer to specific missions, countries and implementing partners and are solely provided as an educational tool. Please read the disclaimer and copyright notice of this site before using the repository of recommendations.
