AFMD-81-117: Published: Sep 30, 1981. Publicly Released: Sep 30, 1981.
- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the functional design of the Program and Fund Distribution System, Phase II.
GAO found that the system is in conformity in all material respects with the approved accounting principles and standards of the Department of the Army. The system is designed to control Army receipt and distribution of program fund authority for Army nonprocurement appropriations. The total system controls program and fund distribution from the departmental to the installation level. It is not a complete accounting system since it relates only to fund distribution. GAO did not evaluate the automatic data processing aspects, because the automated portion of the system is in the developmental stage. However, planned changes should be discussed with GAO and, if deemed significant, submitted formally for approval. GAO suggested that the system should be periodically reviewed to assure that it is operating as designed.
