This testimony compilation is from the July 14, 2016 hearing "Examining Mismanagement in Office of Justice Programs Grantmaking" before the House Subcommittee on Government Operations. From the statement of Michael Horowitz: "From Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 through FY 2015, the Department awarded over $13 billion in grants. Of that amount, over $ 10 billion was awarded by OJP (Office of Justice Programs) to thousands of government and non-government recipients. During that same time period, the OIG (Office of the Inspector General) issued approximately 100 audits of grants awarded by OJP containing about 700 recommendations and identifying approximately $100 million in dollar-related findings, which have included both questioned costs and funds that we found could have been put to better use. [...] Over the past several years, OJP and the Department have made positive strides in improving their grants management, including implementing online grants management training, enhancing its management of high-risk grantees, and combining the individual grant rules promulgated by each of the three DOJ [Department of Justice] grant-making agencies into a consolidated Department Grants Financial Guide." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael E. Horowitz, Beth McGarry, Gretta Goodwin, and Jeffrey Sedgwick.
