In my opinion, our internal control is weak due to lack of segregation of duties when it come to processing and authorizing purchase requests to contracts (C) or purchase orders (P). Is there anything in FAR, DFARS, PGI, CD, FMR, or DFAS that require certain department or individual to accept the invoice in WAWF other than contracting office? I understand that obligating the government is the job of the contracting officer. However, accepting invoice is part of contract admin that can be delegated to lower level or retain by the requesting office or end user.

The Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment training site includes a link that shows the required separation of duties. For example, the invoice processing official must be different than receiving official in iRAPT (formerly WAWF). You can review the separation of duties controls at this link.
