Audit Initiated of DOT’s Implementation of the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act of 2010 During Fiscal Year 2016
The Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act of 2010 (IPERA) mandates improper payment reporting requirements for agencies and oversight requirements for inspectors general. Since the law was enacted, the Federal Government has intensified efforts to eliminate incorrect payments made from Federal program funds, including wrong amounts, duplicate payments, and payments with insufficient documentation. Accordingly, we are initiating this audit to determine whether the Department of Transportation complied with IPERA’s requirements as implemented by the Office of Management and Budget.
