DOT’s FY 2012 Improper Payment Reporting Generally Complies With IPERA
On March 14, 2013, we issued our report on DOT's improper payment reporting under the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act (IPERA). Our objectives were to determine whether: (1) the improper payment information reported in DOT’s fiscal year 2012 Annual Financial Report was accurate; and (2) DOT complied with IPERA’s requirements. We found that DOT both accurately reported improper payment information in its fiscal year 2012 Annual Financial Report (AFR) and complied with IPERA, with some exceptions. We made two recommendations to assist the Department in its IPERA reporting. DOT agreed to provide a written response after receiving our final report.
