Audit of ASPR's Operation of the Strategic National Stockpile in Response to the COVID-19 Disease Pandemic
The Strategic National Stockpile (Stockpile) is a repository of supplies for use in the event of a national emergency in the United States or its territories. Originally funded by Congress in Fiscal Year 1999 and operated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) at the Department of Health and Human Services has been responsible since 2018 for the operation of the Stockpile. OIG has historically reviewed various aspects of the Department's emergency preparedness and response. We plan to determine whether ASPR's operation of the Stockpile was effective in response to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
