Oversight of the Colorado Emergency Management Performance Grant Program Needs Improvement [open pdf - 661KB]
From the Highlights: "We conducted this audit to determine whether the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) were sufficiently monitoring the Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) program to ensure that funds were used in accordance with grant program guidelines and other applicable state and Federal laws. [...] We made five recommendations to improve financial controls and subgrantee monitoring, and maintain adequate documentation for expenditures. These recommendations, when implemented, should improve the efficiency and effectiveness of Colorado's EMPG program."
