Letter to Senator Shaheen Regarding the Impact of Sequestration on DOT OIG’s Ability To Oversee Government Spending

Requested by Senator Jeanne Shaheen
Project ID: 
CC2013015

On May 15, 2013, we issued a letter responding to Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s request for information on sequestration’s impact on our oversight of DOT spending. Our letter highlights cost-cutting actions we have taken prior to and following the enactment of the Budget Control Act in August 2011, the oversight challenges we now face, and the expected long-term impact on our ability to maximize our return on investment and help ensure the Nation’s transportation systems are safe and effective.
