FEMA Has No Assurance that Only Designated Recipients Received $6.37 Million in Fuel

Executive Summary

FEMA has no assurance that mission-assigned fuel deliveries for New York went only to FEMA-designated recipients. We reviewed the $6.37 million FEMA paid the Defense Logistics Agency for 1.7 million gallons of fuel. However, of this amount, we found incomplete and questionable supporting documentation for $4.56 million in fuel deliveries. Therefore, we could not verify the eligibility of the recipients that received this fuel. In addition, the Defense Logistics Agency delivered $1.81 million of fuel to recipients outside the mission assignment’s scope of work. As a result, FEMA cannot be sure that any of the fuel went to approved power restoration or emergency public transportation work in New York, as FEMA intended.
