- Full Report:
A review of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico's practices, procedures, and controls over federally donated commodities for food relief programs did not disclose current instances of theft or excessive spoilage and indicated that the commodities were adequately accounted for at the time of the review. However, both the Commonwealth control over donated commodities and the Food and Nutrition Service monitoring of the commodity program in the Commonwealth need improvement to insure that the program there does not deteriorate in the future.
