Neither OIG nor the Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy could use the Purchase Card On-Line System to assess and determine whether DoD Approving/Billing Officials adequately reviewed 32,690 transactions that the system referred (during the period January through June 2012) as being at-risk of noncompliance with applicable laws and criteria, including lost and stolen cards.
This occurred because the automated system:
- did not contain sufficient capability to automatically retrieve and match the case disposition reviews with the universe of the at-risk Government Purchase Card transactions, and
- was unable to archive case history file data, which were maintained in a separate data warehouse.
As a result, the automated system cannot be employed for oversight reviews, such as assessments of Approving/Billing reviews and disposition of at-risk transactions.
