We found that inadequate controls resulted in non-compliance with agency policies and guidance from the Office of Management and Budget. To reduce the risk of fraudulent behavior and financial abuse, the agency needs to improve its policies and procedures, training, and oversight provided to the purchase card program. By not maintaining sufficient controls to assure compliance with Peace Corps and Federal requirements, the Peace Corps put itself at risk for fraudulent behavior and financial abuse. We found several weaknesses caused by insufficient controls: inadequate policies and procedures, lack of required training, inadequate oversight, and inadequate use of the available data analytic tools. This report makes six recommendations to help enhance controls over purchase card transactions.
