The Pandemic Response Accountability Committee (PRAC) was established by the CARES Act within the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency to promote transparency and conduct and support oversight of the federal funds used to address the Coronavirus pandemic in order to:
1) prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse, and mismanagement and
2) mitigate major risks that cut across program and agency boundaries. As part of its responsibilities, the PRAC is supporting Inspectors General in their oversight of the pandemic recovery funds.
Offices of Inspector General (OIG) across government conduct independent and objective audits, inspections, evaluations, and other reviews of federal agency programs and activities to ensure they operate economically, efficiently, and effectively. They also conduct investigations of their agency programs and operations.
A compendium of completed PRAC and OIG reports that relate to the government’s pandemic response and recovery efforts, as well as relevant reports issued by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), are available on the Reports page.
