Our objective was to determine whether the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) complied with the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act of 2010 (IPERA). We also evaluated the accuracy and completeness of DHS’ improper payment reporting and DHS’ performance in reducing and recapturing improper payments. Although DHS met all the reporting requirements of IPERA, it did not meet its annual reduction targets established for each high-risk program as required by OMB. As such, we concluded that DHS did not fully comply with IPERA.
Consistent with CDC guidance, most Office of Inspector General employees are currently serving the American people remotely. We are determined to keep interruptions to our operations to a minimum, and we appreciate your patience during this time.
