Since April 2008, USAID has paid a Washington, D.C., accounting firm at least $1.9 million for audits and financial services related to the agency’s Cuba program. Budget records show four payments:
- $169,000 paid on April 15, 2008.
- $831,000 paid on July 28, 2008.
- $300,000 paid on April 12, 2010.
- $600,000 paid on July 27, 2010, as part of a contract that is set to end on April 11, 2011.
Total: $1.9 million.
The DMP Group conducted the audits and other services in exchange for the $1.9 millon. Earlier today, I sent two Freedom of Information Act requests to USAID, asking for any reports and audits that The DMP Group has produced in connection with these contracts. You can see these and other pending FOIA requests here.
