Survey results are presented of accounting controls over revenue and expenditure transactions at seven Agency for International Development (AID) missions in Latin America and the Caribbean. Where potential weaknesses were indicated, selected transactions were tested to determine if the weaknesses existed; no attempt was made to establish their extent or the precise corrective actions needed.

The survey disclosed weaknesses in internal controls over accounts receivable, cash collections, and imprest funds. It was noted that a need exists for increased internal reviews. Since survey results were discussed with responsible accounting station officials who initiated or promised corrective action, formal recommendations were not made. However, it is suggested that the Director, AID, follow up on the adequacy of the corrections, and that he consider the deficiencies noted during any future accounting system design efforts.
