Audit Initiated of MARAD's Oversight and Coordination of Port Infrastructure Development Projects
The Office of Inspector General is initiating an audit of the Maritime Administration's (MARAD) coordination and oversight of port infrastructure projects for state, local, and territorial authorities. Since 2003, MARAD has engaged in port infrastructure development projects, with a role in providing oversight and coordination of projects, acting as a central procurement organization, leveraging Federal and non-Federal funding resources, and streamlining environmental review and permitting processes. The objectives of this audit are to: (1) evaluate MARAD's oversight and risk management of port infrastructure development projects, and (2) evaluate MARAD's oversight of port infrastructure projects' contract awards and administration.
