Audit Initiated of Highway Safety Grants to Mississippi Department of Public Safety, Office of Highway Safety
Over the past four years, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) provided more than $57 million in highway safety grants to the State of Mississippi, Department of Public Safety, Office of Highway Safety (MOHS). OIG is initiating an audit of MOHS’s management of highway safety grants. Our audit objectives are to: (1) determine whether MOHS has sufficient management controls to ensure its compliance with Federal grant requirements and proper expenditure of Federal grant funds; and (2) assess NHTSA’s actions designed to ensure MOHS’s compliance with Federal grant requirements.
