Flood Mapping

  • FEMA Needs to Improve Management of its Flood Mapping Program

    Executive Summary

    We determined that FEMA is unable to assess flood hazard miles to meet its program goal and is not ensuring mapping partner quality reviews are completed in accordance with applicable guidance.  FEMA needs to improve its management and oversight of flood mapping projects to achieve or reassess its program goals and ensure the production of accurate and timely flood maps.  We made four recommendations that would help FEMA strengthen its management and oversight of flood mapping projects to achieve program goals.  FEMA concurred with all four recommendations.
