Protecting the integrity of the Combined Federal Campaign program remains a high priority within OPM.
To achieve the goal of providing federal donors with complete accountability, I am pleased to provide you the new CFC Audit Guide developed in collaboration with the Office of the Inspector General. The Guide is effective immediately.
The Guide outlines specific procedures for the audit of Principal Combined Fund Organizations' (PCFOs) financial statements by Independent Public Accountants as well as other reporting requirements. The availability of specific fiscal and program compliance information will, in turn, allow members of Local Federal Coordinating Committees (LFCCs) and OPM to more effectively fulfill our oversight responsibilities over the CFC.
As you plan for implementation of the Guide, the Office of CFC Operations staff will be available to respond to any questions and provide your campaign with technical support to facilitate this process.
By strengthening oversight of the CFC program and promoting better financial controls among campaign management organizations, we will build a stronger CFC for the future. I sincerely appreciate your cooperation in this effort and your commitment to the CFC.
