Audit Report - Centers for Disease Control Small Purchases

Issued on  | Posted on  | Report number: A-04-90-04016

Report Materials


The objective of this review was to determine if small purchase acquisitions were being accomplished in a manner that is effective, efficient, economical, and in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulations. The review disclosed minor procedural and clerical discrepancies related to: (1) improper object class designations, and (2) inappropriate contracting officer signatures on purchase orders. We recommended that CDC's contracting officers routinely verify the accuracy of object class designations so that the resulting accounting information and reports will reflect the goods and services purchased. We also recommended that the CDC's Procurement and Grants Office (PGO) assure proper adherence to the contracting officers' signature requirements. The CDC officials concurred with our findings and recommendations.
