Audits of Superstorm Sandy Disaster Relief Act

The Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013, P.L. No. 113-2 (Disaster Relief Act), provided funding to HHS for use in aiding Hurricane Sandy disaster victims and their communities. After sequestration, HHS received $759.5 million in Disaster Relief Act funding. Of this amount, $733.6 million was allocated to three operating divisions: ACF, National Institutes of Health, and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. We plan to perform audits of grantees that have received Disaster Relief Act grant funding through one of the above-mentioned HHS operating divisions. We will review grantees' internal controls related to the oversight of Disaster Relief Act funds. Additionally, we plan to review the allowability of costs claimed and the appropriateness of costs that were budgeted but not yet expended.
