The Recovery Act also provides $2 million in funding to the DOJ Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to help ensure accountability and oversight of the DOJ Recovery Act funds. The OIG is undertaking a series of actions to review DOJ’s Recovery Act activities, including providing Department officials and grant administrators with advice and training on improving the grant management process in an effort to prevent fraud or misuse of the funds. In addition, the OIG is examining DOJ funds awarded through the Recovery Act to determine if Department components are properly issuing and overseeing Recovery Act funds and if grantees are appropriately using Recovery Act Funds.
