Interim Report - Review of the Office of Justice Programs' Administration of CARES Act Funding [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Document: "The OIG's [Department of Justice Office of Inspector General] oversight of CARES [Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security] Act funding will be conducted in several phases, and we will issue focused interim reports to provide transparency to the public and ensure OJP [Office of Justice Programs] is able to review and respond to areas of potential risk in a timely manner. This report covers OJP's actions during the solicitation's open period. Generally, we noted that OJP has distributed CESF [Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding] funding quickly and in accordance with CARES Act requirements. We also identified two areas of concern specific to the CESF program which, if addressed in a proactive manner, may mitigate the potentiality of fraud or wasteful spending in the long term."
