DFAS Controls over Duplicate Payments in One Pay Were Generally Effective, But There Were Opportunities for Improvement
DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE ALEXANDRIA VA OFFICE OF THE INSPECTOR GENERAL
Pagination or Media Count:
We are providing this report for review and comment. Although processes for detecting and preventing improper duplicate payments in One Pay were generally effective, Defense Finance and Accounting Service processes and system controls can be improved. The Jack of specific review procedures, One Pay system edit controls, and Business Activity Monitoring detection logic resulted in the Defense Finance and Accounting Service making 11 duplicate payments valued at 162,547. Additionally, the Enterprise Standards and Solutions Directorate did not provide specific guidance on improper payment reporting, which resulted in the Defense Finance and Accounting Service not reporting seven improper payments and an understatement on Navy and DoD improper payment reports of 682,839. We considered management comments on a draft of this report from the Defense Finance and Accounting Service when preparing the final report.
