Risk Assessment of Department of Health and Human Services Grant Closeout Process

The Grants Oversight and New Efficiency (GONE) Act, P.L. 114-117, enacted on January 28, 2016, established mandatory reporting requirements for Federal Departments and Inspectors General Offices related to grant awards and cooperative agreements expired for 2 or more years that have not been closed out. GONE Act section 2(a)(1) requires that Departments provide a report listing each Federal grant award by time period of expiration, with zero dollar balances, and with undisbursed balances. GONE Act section 2(a)(1)(b) and (c) also require Departments to describe challenges leading to delays in grant closeout and, for the 30 oldest Federal grant awards, to explain why the grant has not been closed out. GONE Act section 2(c) requires Inspectors General of Departments with greater than $500 million in annual grant funding to conduct a risk assessment of their Departments' grants closeout process. This review will fulfill the HHS-OIG's responsibilities under Section 2(c) of the GONE Act. The objective of our review will be to conduct a risk assessment of the Department of Health and Human Services grant closeout process
