The GLO has an internal audit staff to review programs and grantee activities related to disaster recovery activities.

Monitoring plans are developed to ensure recovery allocation distributions are carried out in accordance with state and federal laws, rules, and regulations, as well as the requirements set forth in the Federal Register Notices related to each disaster. The monitoring plan includes duplication of benefits review to ensure compliance with the Stafford Act. The GLO emphasizes mitigation of fraud, abuse, and mismanagement related to accounting, procurement, and accountability which may also be investigated by the State Auditor’s Office (SAO).
