Report Materials

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Inspector General (OIG), is pleased to present the "Compendium of Unimplemented Office of Inspector General Recommendations"(Compendium). The purpose of the Compendium is to combine significant1 unimplemented monetary and nonmonetary recommendations addressed to the Department into one publication2 for interested parties to obtain information about outstanding recommendations, which, if implemented, have the potential to result in cost savings and improvements to program efficiency and effectiveness. OIG recommendations stem from audits and evaluations that have been performed pursuant to the Inspector General Act of 1978 (P.L. No. 95-452), as amended. Recommendations may require one of three types of actions: legislative, regulatory, or administrative. Some complex issues may involve two or three types of actions. As part of its effort to track unimplemented recommendations, OIG performs routine follow-up with the Department to determine the status of actions that have been taken to implement the recommendations. This publication includes information about recommendations that had not been implemented as of December 31, 2007.
