IG Confirms Many Recovery Act Criminal Investigations

November 3, 2011

In what should serve as a warning that use of Recovery Act funds continues to draw close scrutiny from federal watchdogs, in written testimony on November 2 before a House subcommittee, DoE Inspector General Friedman revealed that his office has initiated over 100 criminal investigations involving “various schemes, including the submission of false information [and] claims for unallowable or unauthorized expenses,” under the Recovery Act.   He also confirmed that his office has “ongoing and planned reviews” of Recovery Act funding and usage.
