Statement from PRAC Chair Michael E. Horowitz on OLC Opinion on Special Inspector General for Pandemic Recovery Oversight Jurisdiction
Earlier this year, the Special Inspector General for Pandemic Recovery (SIGPR) sought a legal opinion from the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) to determine whether SIGPR’s oversight jurisdiction extended to two programs created by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) over which the Inspector General for the Department of the Treasury (Treasury OIG) was already conducting oversight.
Michael E. Horowitz, Chair of the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee (PRAC), announced the release of the PRAC’s Semiannual Report to Congress. The report covers the period from October 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021.
