Report: EPA’s Background Investigation Support Contracts and OPM Billings Need Better Oversight and Internal Controls

Report #16-P-0078, December 14, 2015

What Was Found

By not maintaining contract documentation, the EPA does not have reasonable assurance that work is progressing according to the contract, or that OPM billings are correct. The agency overpaid approximately $6,000 over the last 2½ years, and awarded over $545,000 in incentive fees without adequate support.
