Agency Scans of the Department of Transportation's Initial Implementation of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) is undertaking an audit of the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) implementation of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), which designated more than $48 billion for infrastructure investments across several modes of transportation. Our work will consist of a series of structured reviews, or scans, conducted across the DOT agencies that received ARRA funding. This effort is part of our risk–based oversight strategy developed to help DOT address new management challenges presented by ARRA. Our objective is to evaluate each agency’s ARRA implementation by identifying vulnerabilities that could impede DOT’s ability to (1) provide effective oversight to ARRA–funded projects and (2) meet new requirements mandated by ARRA and OMB.
