Compendium of Unimplemented Recommendations

The 2016 edition of OIG's Compendium of Unimplemented Recommendations focuses on the top 25 unimplemented recommendations that, on the basis of OIG's professional opinion, would most positively impact HHS programs in terms of cost savings and/or quality improvements and should, therefore, be prioritized for implementation. The recommendations come from OIG audits and evaluations and are generally grouped according to the underlying HHS program or operation; thus, they are not internally ranked and so do not reflect relative priority among the 25. The Appendix includes a comprehensive list of OIG's significant unimplemented recommendations, including the top 25 unimplemented recommendations as well as other open recommendations that are not in the top 25 list.

In years prior to 2007, information about recommendations was provided in OIG's "Red Book" (unimplemented monetary recommendations) and "Orange Book" (unimplemented nonmonetary recommendations). The "Red Book" focused on significant recommendations to save costs and the "Orange Book" focused on recommendations to improve HHS programs.
