Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board Quarterly Report to Congress
Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, Quarterly Report to Congress and to the President of the United States. Insight and Information on the Recovery Boards Operations Through February 2010. Released March 16, 2010.
“The value that transparency brings to the oversight mission should not be underestimated. For the first time ever we can screen and analyze federal contracts, grants, and loans funded by a government program from within a single database. We also continue to leverage the experience of the Inspector General (IG) community by pairing traditional investigative techniques with refined technologies to examine whether Recovery funds are allocated efficiently and effectively. These new capabilities are helping us send a message to the American people that we are here to protect Recovery funds and a warning to those who dare misuse the funds. Our aim is to keep a close eye on Recovery funds, ensuring that the processes related to their allocation and use are transparent and accountable.”
