The U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General regularly provides grant fraud awareness training to DOJ employees and to recipients of DOJ grant funds and other groups involved in the management or oversight of such funds. In response to the $4 billion in grant funding that DOJ is receiving pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act), the OIG has increased its efforts to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse related to Recovery Act and other grant funding by providing grant fraud awareness training and information to as many stakeholder audiences as possible.
The OIG developed a grant fraud awareness training curriculum tailored to issues arising under the Recovery Act. The OIG has presented this course to the Department’s grant managers and program, budget, and finance staffs to educate them about grant fraud risks and prevention and early detection strategies.
In addition, the DOJ OIG regularly participates in training events open to the public that focus on Recovery Act issues. The OIG currently has no scheduled training events.
