In 1999, OIG audited the Food and Nutrition Service’s (FNS) Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), which provides funding to help ensure that children and adults in day care receive nutritious meals.
In this follow-up audit, nothing came to OIGs attention to indicate that, except in two cases, the controls implemented by FNS in response to OIGs prior recommendations were not operating as prescribed.
During OIG’s audit, potential program abuse by two sponsors came to our attention, OIG examined how they were using their CACFP funds. In total, OIG determined that they had spent nearly $2.5 million contrary to program rules. The sponsors’ misuse of CACFP funds varied from spending over $10,000 to put on a car show to cashing a $110,000 check which the director claimed she used to pay personal taxes.
