World Trade Center Health Program: Review of Administrative Costs - Mandatory Review

Pursuant to the legislative requirements, medical services are provided to eligible responders and survivors with health conditions related to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center through contracted facilities known as Clinical Centers of Excellence. The World Trade Center Health Program (WTCHP) was established in January 2011 and is administered by CDC (James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 and Public Health Service Act § 3301(d)). Prior Federal audits found that CDC did not reliably estimate costs for monitoring and treating program beneficiaries. We will review WTCHP expenditures to assess whether internal controls have been established in the WTCHP in accordance with OMB Circular A-123, Management's Responsibility for Internal Control. As part of our review, we will determine whether the internal controls are adequate to prevent excessive administrative payments in accordance with Federal contracting requirements.
