Issued on  | Posted on  | Report number: OIG-TUR-2018

Report Materials

The Solutions to Reduce Fraud, Waste, and Abuse in HHS Programs: Top Unimplemented Recommendations is an annual publication of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS or the Department) Office of Inspector General (OIG). In this edition, we focus on the top 25 unimplemented recommendations that, in OIG’s view, would most positively affect HHS programs in terms of cost savings, program effectiveness and efficiency, and public health and safety. The unimplemented recommendations come from OIG audits and evaluations performed pursuant to the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended. This edition begins with a list of the top 25 unimplemented recommendations. The top 25 unimplemented recommendations are grouped by HHS operating division (OPDIV). For each OPDIV, we also outline the top unimplemented recommendations, key OIG findings, and the OPDIV’s reported progress in implementing the recommendations. Additionally, this edition includes a list of all unimplemented OIG recommendations that require legislative action, as well as a broader list of OIG’s significant unimplemented recommendations described in previous Semiannual Report(s) to Congress. This publication is responsive to requirements of the Inspector General Act.
