OIG Name:                                     U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Inspector General (OIG)


                                              OIG will work with HHS management to ensure acountability by investigating fraud and misconduct and by conducting audits and evaluations to identify
OIG Broad Recovery Act Goals:
                                              misspent funds, assess internal controls; and ensure that program goals are achieved and stimulus funds are accurately tracked and reported.

                                              OIG's goal is to provide the Congress and the American public with current and useful information on OIG's Recovery Act activities. Recovery Act documents,
OIG Broad Outreach Recovery Act Goals:        including audit and evaluation reports, and reports of investigative accomplishments, will be posted at http://oig.hhs.gov/recovery. OIG is reaching out to
                                              Congressional committees on significant ARRA products as well as to State Medicaid directors and State Auditors.

                                              Consistent with Enterprise Risk Management principles, OIG has reviewed the following in assessing risk for HHS Recovery Act programs: internal environment,
OIG Recovery Act Risk Assessment Process:     objective setting, event identification, risk assessment, risk response, control activities, information and communication, and monitoring. Also, as part of its
                                              audits of HHS programs, OIG will report to management on internal control deficiencies that provides information on risk.
