Recovery.gov - Track the Money

Recovery.gov is the U.S. government's official website that provides easy access to data
related to Recovery Act spending and allows for the reporting of potential fraud, waste, and abuse.

Offices of Inspectors General

When an agency spends Recovery funds, its Inspector General is responsible for oversight of that money. The Inspector General reviews Recovery spending to ensure that:

  • Projects undertaken with Recovery money meet legal and administrative requirements
  • Their agencies have the right administrative practices in place
  • There are effective controls in place to manage Recovery funds

The Inspectors General are required to report the details of their reviews to the public.  
Find out more at each OIG's Recovery web page.
