We determined that FEMA did not implement our recommendations and suspended improvements on existing information technology systems. We recommended that FEMA include an enterprise solution in its Grants Management Modernization platform for tracking applicant compliance with the Public Assistance Program insurance requirements that are a condition of receiving a disaster assistance grant.

- Executive Summary
We determined that all corrective actions have been implemented for recommendations 1, 3 and 4, which were designed to increase the effectiveness of SAVE verification. In response to OIG recommendation 2, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) built and implemented an interface with the Department of Justice’s Immigration Review Information Exchange System in August 2016 to obtain up-to-date information on the status of deportable aliens. While the interface is operational, USCIS and the Department of Justice’s Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR) still need to approve an Interface Control Agreement between the two systems before we can close the recommendation.Report NumberOIG-17-23-VRIssue DateDocument FileDHS AgencyOversight AreaFiscal Year2017
