Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Has Not Implemented a Charging System for Data Processing Costs

Issued on  | Posted on  | Report number: A-04-92-03503

Report Materials


This final audit report points out that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has not complied with requirements to implement a charging system for its data processing costs. Although the CDC established a "fee-for-service" policy that data processing costs would be charged to component centers, institutes and offices based on services actually provided to those users, the policy was never implemented. We are recommending that the Public Health Service direct the CDC to implement the policy.
