Audit Initiated of FTA’s Oversight of Hurricane Sandy Funds for Response, Recovery, and Rebuilding
The Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 (DRAA) provided over $10 billion to the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Public Transportation Emergency Relief Program for Hurricane Sandy relief. The act also directed our office to provide oversight of FTA’s Hurricane Sandy relief funds. To comply with DRAA, we initiated a series of audits. On December 3, 2013, we issued our initial assessment of FTA’s efforts to meet DRAA’s requirements and implement the Emergency Relief Program. In this audit, our objective is to determine whether FTA provides effective oversight of grantees’ contracting practices using DRAA funds.
