From the Report Summary: "The Office of Inspector General works to provide oversight to all aspects of agency responsibility, which includes monitoring the implementation of significant provisions of laws and regulations and major projects to identify at-risk situations. Consistent with this approach, we examined the mobile phone purchase and the monitoring of the unemployment and sickness payments for potential fraud in response to the CARES [Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security] Act. The objective of this interim review is to provide RRB [Railroad Retirement Board] management with information that will assist them in ensuring compliance, transparency, and fiscal accountability under the CARES Act. The scope of this review is the RRB's actions and implementation through August 2020 for the purchase and deployment of mobile phones funded by CARES Act appropriation and controls over CARES Act benefit payments."
