The objective of the performance audit was to assess the extent to which the implementation of the project assignment and allocation process by the CNAs is effective and follows applicable laws and regulations as well as established policies and procedures. To answer the audit objective, the auditors interviewed key officials from the CNAs and the Commission and spoke with selected leaders from the NPA community. Overall, the performance audit concluded that while the CNAs’ project distribution processes were generally effective and followed applicable laws, regulations, and established guidance from the Commission, the CNAs’ distribution processes could be improved with updated guidance, better Commission management, and additional oversight from the Commission. The auditors identified several opportunities for the Commission to improve the CNAs’ processes by clarifying their current guidance and requiring the CNAs to fully align their project distribution policies with Commission policy 51.301 (Selection of NPAs for Project Assignment and Allocation of Orders and its related Interim Pilot Test).
