In July 2010, the President signed the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act of 2010 (IPERA), which includes improper payment reporting requirements for agencies and oversight requirements for inspectors general. As required, 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 2013 Annual Financial Report was accurate; and (2) DOT complied with IPERA’s requirements.
