Abstract:

This report deals with the processes used by the Defense Finance and Accounting Service DFAS and by Air Force, Air Force Reserve, and National 3uard personnel offices to reconcile common pay and personnel data of their civilian employees. Reconciliations help detect payment errors and reduce the risk of fraud and abuse. A previous report addressed Air Force active-duty members. During FY 1994, DFAS used the Defense Civilian Pay System the DoD Pay System and the Air Force Standard Civilian Automated Pay System the Air Force Pay System to pay approximately 197,000 civilian employees almost 9 billion. Payments were based on data recorded in personnel ffles at installation and regional locations and entered in the Defense Civilian Personnel Data System the Personnel System. Audit Objectives. The primary audit objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of the reconciliation process used by DFAS, Air Force, Air Force Reserve, and Air National Guard personnel offices to ensure agreement of data common to civilian pay and personnel systems at the end of pay period 14, 1994 July 9, 1994, and to recover any inappropriate payments. We also reviewed applicable management controls for compliance with the DoD management control program.
