The objectives of this performance audit were to assess the completeness, timeliness, quality, and accuracy of Fiscal Year 2021, First Quarter financial and award data submitted for publication on USAspending.gov in accordance with the DATA Act and to assess the Peace Corps’ compliance with use of the Government-wide financial data standards established by the Office of Management and Budget and the Department of the Treasury. While the majority of the data submitted was of high quality, the agency failed to include required information in their submission, submitted inappropriate data, and misrepresented the level of budgetary resources used. These errors occurred because the agency continues to lack a comprehensive quality control program over the DATA Act submissions, including source systems and data.
