Recommendations Dashboard

epa_recs_monetary_graphic               (Select graphics to view all open recommendations.)

The Office of Inspector General makes recommendations to the U.S. EPA to promote effectiveness, efficiency, economy, and integrity of all EPA programs and operations, including those performed by its contractors and grantees. Our audit report findings and conclusions explain the basis for the specific corrective actions we recommend. Recommendations are considered resolved when managers and the auditors agree on the required corrective actions. After the agreed-upon corrective actions have been completed, the recommendations are considered closed.

This Recommendations Dashboard is comprised of data from our Semiannual Reports to Congress, powered by and provides the status of OIG recommendations going back to FY 2015.
