Congressional Watchdog Prepares To Unleash New Audits

Via The Washington Examiner:

The congressional watchdog is preparing a wave of audits on the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus crisis. 

The Government Accountability Office will conduct at least 30 audits and reviews into the CARES Act by the end of April, according to Politico

The audits include looking into possible missteps in distributing stimulus payments and medical equipment, as well as the handling of nursing home infections and the nation’s food supply. The office’s top investigator said it has already received a complaint that a dead person received a stimulus check. 

“We’re moving forward very quickly,” said Angela Nicole Clowers, chief of the watchdog’s healthcare unit. “We’re an existing institution and have a lot of institutional knowledge about all these programs. It gives us sort of a leg up.”
