Hope you are looking for something like this.

$ cat f1

$ cat f2

$ awk -F',' '{if(NR == FNR) {ar[$1]=$0;next} print ar[$1]","$2}' f1 f2

If the input files are sorted you can use
join -t',' -j 1 f1 f2

If the result of your script is in 'file1' and the master file your maintaining is 'master_file'

below commands can be used append the data of file1 to master_file

$ awk -F',' 'NR==FNR {ar[$1]=$0;next} 
            {  if($1 in ar) {  print ar[$1] "," $2;delete ar[$1] } 
                else print $0
            END { for (i in ar) print ar[i] }' master_file file1 > master_file.tmp

$ mv master_file.tmp master_file
