Letter to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt Regarding Management of Contractors


07.03.18

Excerpt: “Last year, EPA OIG found ‘EPA is unaware of the number of contractors who have significant information security responsibilities’ at the agency.  Additionally, EPA OIG found that the agency lacks processes for determining whether ‘contractors who play a key role in agency operations have the training required to fulfill their responsibilities, or have completed required background investigations for contractor personnel in high-risk positions.’ While EPA has taken steps to address these issues, recent audit work by EPA OIG continues to demonstrate challenges relating to the EPA’s management of contractors.”
