As required under the Grants Oversight and New Efficiency (GONE) Act of 2016, Public Law 114-117, we conducted a risk assessment of FEMA’s grant closeout process to determine whether a full audit is warranted in the future. We identified risks in three overarching areas: Unreliable Systems of Record, Lack of Integration in Grant Closeout Policies and Guidance, and Delays in Grant Closeout and Deobligation of Funds. As a result, we may conduct a full audit of FEMA’s grant closeout process at a future date. DHS and FEMA concurred with our risk assessment results. We made no recommendations to FEMA.
