In 2011, the UN World Food Program (WFP) provided about $4 billion in food assistance -- including U.S. contributions of about $1.2 billion -- to about 99 million beneficiaries in 75 countries. Many of these countries include high-risk areas where WFP staff have limited access. In 2009, a media report alleged that large amounts of WFPs food assistance were being diverted in one of these countries, Somalia. Subsequent external and internal audits found deficiencies in WFPs control of its Somalia operations, In response, WFP took steps to strengthen its controls, including adopting the Comm. of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO) of the Treadway Comm. internal control framework. This report examines the extent to which (1) the design of WFP internal controls related to delivery and monitoring of food assistance reflects COSO principles; and (2) WFP has implemented as designed certain controls in selected high-risk areas. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
