Audit Initiated of FHWA’s Oversight of Highway Infrastructure Program-CRRSA Act Funds
The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriation (CRRSA) Act of 2021 provided $10 billion to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to address impacts resulting from COVID-19. Most of this funding, $9.83 billion, was provided to States and the District of Columbia through FHWA’s Surface Transportation Block Grants (STBG) program. Due to the large amount the CRRSA Act provided to FHWA, the timeframe for obligating and using the funds, and the act’s other requirements, we are initiating this audit. Accordingly, our objectives are to assess the Agency’s policies and procedures for (1) overseeing States’ compliance with the FHWA Highway Infrastructure Program’s (HIP) CRRSA Act requirements and (2) tracking and monitoring FHWA HIP-CRRSA funds. Our audit will focus only on the CRRSA funds provided under the STBG program.
