OIG Highway Admin
The Deputy Principal Assistant Inspector General for Auditing and Evaluation testified on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) oversight programs and on issues impacting the Subcommittee’s work on the Agency’s reauthorization. The Deputy Principal Assistant Inspector General noted that FMCSA has taken action to improve CSA data quality and system development, but nationwide implementation of timely and effective enforcement interventions remains a challenge.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is responsible for ensuring that States close out projects timely, a critical step towards the final accounting of States’ use of Federal funds. As part of our the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) oversight mandate, we reviewed FHWA’s oversight of ARRA project closeouts and found that the vast majority of ARRA-funded Federal-aid highway and bridge projects have been closed out, but a small percentage of the remaining active projects will not be closed out before ARRA grant funds expire on September 30, 2015.
On February 19, 2015, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued the final decision for debarment of Cindy Taylor Stewart and Cindy Taylor Trucking and Construction, Inc. (CTTC).
