USAID West Bank and Gaza Partner Contracted Audit Guidelines

Speeches Shim

Since fiscal year 2003, the U.S. Congress has mandated in its annual appropriations laws that USAID shall ensure that “all contractors and grantees, and significant sub-contractors and sub-grantees, under the West Bank and Gaza Program” be subject to Federal or non-Federal audits at least annually.

In addition to meeting the above stated Congressional audit mandate, USAID/WBG must also meet USAID’s own audit requirements set in its Automated Directive System (ADS) Chapters 590 and 591, and the audit guidelines set in the Office of Inspector General’s Recipient Contracted Audit Guidelines dated February 2009 (OIG Guidelines).

The USAID Regional Inspector General office in Cairo (RIG/C) managed the mandated audits for the Mission from 2003 to 2010. Starting in FY 2011, USAID/WBG assumed responsibility for managing these audits through a Partner Contracted Audit (PCA) program.
