Virtual Listening Forum: Stakeholder Perspectives on Oversight of the Federal Covid-19 Spending and Response

The PRAC will hold a virtual public listening forum entitled, “Stakeholder Perspectives on Oversight of the Federal COVID-19 Spending and Response,” on June 3, 2020 at 2 pm Eastern Time. The PRAC is composed of 20 Inspectors General from across the federal government leading efforts to promote transparency and support and conduct oversight of more than $2.4 trillion in payments to individual citizens, loans for businesses, support for hospitals and other medical providers, and economic relief for impacted industries.

This forum is an opportunity for stakeholders to provide insights into specific areas where the PRAC should focus its oversight attention to enhance transparency and accountability over emergency pandemic funds. Speakers will represent a cross-section of the pandemic response, including state and local government, businesses, financial institutions, the health care sector, non-profits, and government transparency organizations. A full list of speakers will be available prior to the forum.

The virtual event is open to viewing by the public live on YouTube and will be recorded and posted on the PRAC website.
