Compliance with the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act) Mandatory Review

On May 9, 2014, the President signed the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act) of 2014, which mandated the establishment of Government-wide data standards for financial and payment data by May 2015, and agency reporting of consistent, reliable, and searchable financial and payment data by May 2017, to be displayed for taxpayers and policy makers on USASpending.gov. The DATA Act also requires OIG to review a statistically valid sampling of the spending data submitted under this Act by HHS and submit to Congress and make publically available a report assessing the completeness, timeliness, quality, and accuracy of the data sampled and the implementation and use of data standards by HHS. We will use the independent external auditor contracted to audit the annual Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and HHS Financial Statement Audits to perform this work.
