  • Clearly Showing Value of Recovery Funds to the Public is CriticalFive objectives for federal agencies flow down to state and local governmentsRecovery funds awarded and distributed promptly, fairly, reasonablyRecipients and uses of all recovery funds are transparent to the public; public benefits of these funds must be reported clearly, accurately, and in a timely mannerRecovery funds are for authorized purposes and every step is taken to prevent instances of fraud, waste, error, and abuse Projects funded under the recovery legislation avoid unnecessary delays and cost overrunsPrograms must meet specific goals and targets and contribute to improved performance on broad economic indicatorsWe cannot overstate the importance of this effort. We are asking the American people to trust their government with an unprecedented level of funding to address the economic emergency. In return, we must prove to them that their dollars are being invested in initiatives and strategies that make a difference in their communities and across the country.OMB Memorandum Feb. 9, 2009 SAP AG 2009.
