Audit Initiated of Improper Payments in the Airport Improvement Program (AIP)
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) plans to conduct an audit of Improper Payments in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP). The elimination of improper payments has been a major focus of the President’s Management Agenda since 2005. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–123, Appendix C also holds agencies accountable for reducing improper payments in their programs. OIG’s audit objective will be to evaluate whether FAA had adequate internal controls to prevent and detect improper payments to AIP grant recipients.
