Audit of the Administration for Children and Families Awarding and Monitoring of Unaccompanied Children Program Contracts for Emergency Intake Sites
The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), a program office of the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within HHS, manages the Unaccompanied Children Program. In fiscal year 2021, an influx of unaccompanied children began arriving at the U.S. southern border, coinciding with the Nation's ongoing efforts to control the spread of COVID-19. As a result, ACF identified a need to increase the number of shelter beds in its provider network and entered into contracts for shelter and related services for unaccompanied children. In addition, ACF opened a new type of provider facility known as an emergency intake site (EIS). We will determine whether ACF awarded, monitored, and terminated contracts for EISs in accordance with Federal statutes and regulations, as well as HHS policies and procedures.
