Child Care Improper Payments Initiative Grantee Internal Control Self-Assessment Instrument Pilot Study (2011)
- Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) Reporting
- Program Integrity, States/Territories
OCC is revising the Grantee Internal Control Self Assessment Instrument. The final version of the tool will be posted to the OCC website after a pilot process conducted in 2011. The Instrument is designed to assist grantees in assessing how well their policies and procedures meet the CCDF regulatory requirements for supporting program integrity and financial accountability. These requirements are aimed at reducing errors in payment and minimizing waste, fraud, and abuse, to ensure that funds are being used for allowable program purposes and for eligible beneficiaries. This Instrument can be used to help grantees determine how well their internal controls are designed and functioning, and help them to determine what, where, and how improvements can be made.
