EPA OIG IIJA Oversight
The OIG will continually oversee the EPA’s plan and administration of IIJA funding. We will follow up on lessons learned from previous OIG and Government Accountability Office reports and prepare information reports based on them. Information reports will not have recommendations and will present the current status of EPA oversight; this information will be used to plan future work. As part of our regular process, we will conduct capacity audits to formally assess the EPA’s and grantees’ ability to carry out the Agency's stated mission and objectives using infrastructure funds. The OIG will develop multi-year work and inspection plans, propose future audits related to the IIJA, and conduct risk assessments targeting new areas for review.
The OIG’s FY 2022 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Oversight Plan will guide our audits, evaluations, and oversight engagements to address the EPA programs receiving or impacted by IIJA funds.
