Health and Human Services OIG releases 2010 Work Plan
The annual Work Plan describes the various projects that different departments of the OIG plan to do, as well as projects that are in process. These departments include the Office of Audit Services, Office of Evaluation and Inspections, Office of Investigations, and Office of Counsel to the Inspector General.
In the 2010 Work Plan, the OIG grouped ongoing and planned reviews into two major parts:
- CMS – Reviews related to Medicare, Medicaid, information systems controls, the Childrens Health Insurance Program, and related investigation and legal counsel to OIG.
- Public Health and Human Services Programs and Department-wide Issues – Reviews related to agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health, the Administration on Aging, and the Administration for Children and Families. This part also describes department-wide issues, such as financial accounting and information systems management.
The Work Plan also includes reviews related to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, described in Appendix A of the document.
