Implement the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Effectively and Efficiently

President Obama signed The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) into law on February 17, 2009. It is an unprecedented effort to jumpstart our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century. ARRA is an extraordinary response to a crisis unlike any since the Great Depression, and it includes measures to modernize our nation's infrastructure, enhance energy independence, expand educational opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax relief, and protect those in greatest need.

As part of this legislation, Congress provided the Social Security Administration's Office of the Inspector General with $2 million for oversight and audit of programs, projects and activities funded in ARRA. Our audit work will assess whether funds were used for authorized purposes and also identify instances of fraud, waste, error, and abuse. Our audit work began in March 2009. These funds are available through September 30, 2012.

For information on all government agencies’ spending under ARRA, please visit www.recovery.gov.
