In July 2009, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) decided to obligate approximately $211 million in Recovery Act funds to Superfund contractors. Office of Management and Budget Recovery Act guidance requires agencies to actively monitor contracts to ensure that performance, cost, and schedule goals are met. The guidance emphasizes the importance of completing timely contractor performance evaluations. We conducted this audit of the process to evaluate contractors that received or are expected to receive American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) funds from the EPA to determine whether EPA completed contractor performance evaluations in a timely manner and considered all sources of information during the contractor performance evaluation process.
