The Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducted this audit to determine whether the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) successfully used its grants management tools to identify and mitigate project delays in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) Diesel Emission Reduction Act (DERA) grants. The Recovery Act provided the EPA Diesel Emissions Reduction Program (known as DERA) with $300 million to maximize job preservation and create economic recovery through a variety of diesel emission reduction strategies. To accomplish its objective, EPA awarded $244 million via grants under the State and National Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Programs.
