Audit of HHS Sole Source Contracts Awarded for COVID-19 Testing

HHS established contracts under the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the COVID-­19 pandemic. The contracts cover more than 600 COVID-19 testing sites in 48 states and the District of Columbia. The contracts utilize a Federal bundled payment program paid directly to retailers that receive a flat fee for each test administered, with participating retailers responsible for coordinating the full, end-to-end testing. The contracts that HHS awarded to contractors were sole source contracts totaling approximately $1 billion for COVID-19 testing. We will review the awarding and management of contracts for COVID-19 testing to determine compliance with applicable Federal statutes, regulations, HHS policies and procedures, contract terms and conditions, and the allowability of claimed costs.

Audit of Delinquent Noncustodial Parents' Tax Refund and Economic Impact Payment Intercepts

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides qualifying individuals with a recovery rebate (economic impact payment) of up to $1,200 (or $2,400 if married and filing jointly), plus up to $500 for each qualifying child. Congress added a number of exemptions concerning the economic impact payments within the CARES Act; however, it did not exempt child support debt. According to estimates, up to 10.5 million noncustodial parents are delinquent in their payment of child support and could have their economic impact payments intercepted. Based on the significant impact that the CARES Act will have on the collection of delinquent child support due to the intercept of economic impact payments, we determined that the focus of our audit would be to determine whether selected State(s) have policies and procedures in place to ensure that State child support programs collected and distributed delinquent child support under the Federal Tax Refund Offset program.
