OVERVIEW

The HUD Office of Inspector General (OIG) has been an integral partner in the Department’s post-disaster and reconstruction efforts by providing critical oversight of HUD’s use of Congressional Disaster Supplemental Appropriations. Through our post-disaster audit, evaluative, and investigative efforts, the OIG works to ascertain that disaster aid has been expended as Congress intended. The recent enactment of the Inspector General Empowerment Act of 2016, (Public Law 114-317), has greatly enhanced the OIG’s ability to conduct these oversight and investigative efforts. Some of the OIG’s historical and current reports on Superstorm Sandy oversight may be found below.
