Audit Initiated of DOT's Implementation of the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act of 2010
On July 22, 2010, the President signed the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act of 2010 (IPERA). The law includes new improper payment reporting requirements for agencies and new oversight requirements for inspectors general. We are initiating an audit of the Department of Transportation's (DOT) implementation of IPERA. Our objectives are to determine whether: (1) the improper payment information reported in DOT's fiscal year 2011 Annual Financial Report was accurate; and (2) DOT complied with IPERA's requirements.
