                                          OIG Name: National Aeronautics and Space Administration Office of Inspector General (NASA OIG)


                                                        To evaluate NASA’s compliance with Recovery Act Provisions and the requirements of OMB’s implementing guidance and to monitor the use of funds provided by the Act.
                                                        Specifically, we will assess whether:

                                                        Funds are awarded and distributed in a prompt, fair, and reasonable manner.
                     OIG Broad Recovery Act Goals: The recipients and their use of all funds are transparent to the public, and the public benefits of these funds are reported clearly, accurately, and in a timely manner.
                                                        Projects funded under this Act avoid unnecessary delays and cost overruns.
                                                        Program goals are achieved, including specific program outcomes and improved results on broader economic indicators.
                                                        Allegations of gross mismanagement, fraud, waste, abuse, or any other concerns raised about specific investments using Recovery Act funding are investigated promptly.
                                                        Allegations of retaliation against individuals for disclosing violations involving Recovery Act funds are investigated within 180 days.

                                                        We will augment and enhance our fraud, waste, and abuse outreach program in coordination with NASA’s Acquisition Integrity Program (AIP). Actively participate in a
  OIG Broad Training and Outreach Recovery Act
                                               nationwide series of fraud awareness training programs sponsored by the NASA AIP. Train NASA officials on areas such as the role of the OIG, fraud indicators, reporting
                                        Goals:
                                                        requirements, and the confidentiality that informants will be accorded when they report suspicions to the OIG.
                                                        Our risk assessment process will include summarizing past audits and investigations that identified vulnerabilities in NASA’s financial management system, oversight of grants
                                                        and contracts, and programmatic issues. We will validate that NASA has performed risk assessments and ensure NASA is identifying, prioritizing, and mitigating those risks.
                                                        Additionally, we will monitor and reassess risks throughout the entire Recovery Act life-cycle.

                                                        We made a preliminary assessment as to the risk of each of the five NASA programs slated to receive Recovery Act funds based on our knowledge of the complexity of the
                                                        program and discussions with NASA officials. We subsequently updated this assessment to account for the uncertain future of specific NASA projects. Accordingly, the
                                                        programs have been assessed as follows:

                                                        Exploration-High risk because of the uncertainty of the continuation of specific projects within the program, the potential for increased reliance on contractors for very
      OIG Recovery Act Risk Assessment Process: complex projects, as well as the complex nature of space exploration.

                                                        Earth Science-High risk because the funds are designated for Earth science and climate change research and development projects which, by their nature, are not well defined.

                                                        Aeronautics-High risk because the funds that are designated for enhancing or expanding Aeronautical programs make use of cutting edge technologies with ambitious goals.

                                                        Astrophysics-Medium risk because the funds are designated to expedite current design and fabrication of key component systems of the James Webb Telescope.

                                                        Cross Agency Support-Low risk because the funds are being used for construction work and the repair of buildings at Johnson Space Center. Contracts have been competitively
                                                        bid and awarded as firm fixed price.

   OIG Staff Dedicated to Recovery Act Oversight: One Project Manager and four auditors have been assigned full-time to Recovery Act oversight activities.
