GAO Report on Oversight of Part A/B Grantees

Monday, July 23, 2012

Description

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) was asked to 1) evaluate HRSA’s oversight of CARE Act grantees and 2) examine steps HRSA has taken to assist CARE Act grantees in monitoring their service providers. GAO conducted a review of grantee files from 2010 and 2011 for 25 selected Part A and B grantees, reviewed HHS and HRSA policies, interviewed HRSA officials, analyzed HRSA data on site visits, and interviewed grant officials from 25 selected grantees and six selected service providers. In its report, GAO made several recommendations, including that HRSA implement key elements of grantee oversight consistent with guidance, including restrictive drawdowns; develop a strategic approach for selecting grantees for site visits; and work to identify grantees’ training needs in order to comply with the National Monitoring Standards. HHS concurred with the recommendations and HRSA/HAB is responding to the recommendations. View the report.
