FEMA Can Do More to Improve Public Assistance Grantees’ and Subgrantees’ Compliance with Federal Procurement Rules

Executive Summary

FEMA grants billions of dollars each year to recipients that contract for services to help communities respond to and recover from disasters. We performed this audit to assess the extent to which FEMA has allowed contract costs we questioned for noncompliance with Federal procurement requirements. We also assessed whether FEMA has granted an exception to procurement requirements for a class of grants, rather than on a case-by-case basis.
