Recovery: Accountability


One of the major themes of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (federal stimulus) is accountability and transparency.  Throughout the federal legislation, there are sections detailing the actions that need to be taken to ensure the public is aware of the projects that are being funded through the package as well as the opportunities for funding.

Governor Malloy has transferred oversight of Connecticut ’s compliance with the accountability and transparency provisions of the Recovery Act to the Office of Policy and Management.  OPM is working closely with state agencies receiving and administering stimulus funds to ensure mechanisms are in place to separately track the federal dollars and report on the expenditure of these funds – capturing outcomes such as jobs created or retained. 


In addition, each agency that has a role in implementing Recovery Act programs will be developing a page for their agency’s website devoted specifically to their Recovery Act role and the programs the agency oversees or administers.


Each State Agency has also designated an Accountability Officer to coordinate oversight of programs administered by their agencies, and report to OPM.
