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

The Recovery Act was signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 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. The Act is an extraordinary response to a crisis unlike any since the Great Depression, and 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 this Act. Our audit work will assess whether funds were used for authorized purposes and also to 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 this Act, please visit www.recovery.gov.
