FEMA Should Recover $4.2 Million of Public Assistance Grant Funds Awarded to the Department of Design and Construction, Honolulu, Hawaii

Executive Summary

We interviewed FEMA, SCD,and DDC officials; reviewed judgmentally selected project costs (generally based on dollar value); and performed other procedures considered necessary to accomplish our objective. We did not assess the adequacy of the DDC’s internal controls applicable to grant activities because it was not necessary to accomplish our audit objective. However, we did evaluate fiscal controls, accounting procedures, and whether DDC had a system to account for expenditures on a project ‐ by ‐project basis, in order to determine compliance with governing criteria in effect at the time of the disaster.
