The U.S. federal government is providing nearly 4 trillion dollars to assist with the management of coronavirus. $2 trillion through the CARES Act and more then followed. Much of this money will be provided to organizations as grant funds. I fear that people will focus on the urgent needs, the pressures of the day, and miss the importance of following federal law. In a few years FEMA and the Inspector General will review these grants and the associated paperwork only to discover that the grant fund recipients did not follow federal procurement law; or that they did not keep the necessary documentation; or that they did not use standardized FEMA pricing guidelines when applicable. Listen now, read here: https://ChristinaMoore.us/the-history-of-now/
Fraudsters fraud; corrupt officials corrupt resulting in the maltreatment of public funds and public trust. While not shaming I will continue to identify critical issues, flaws, and core problems. Yes, there are genuine crooks in the world employed as public servants. Alas, the complexity of the rules and poor communication invite unintentional mistakes as well. What can we together formant an environment where the crooks get spotted more quickly?Three promises. First, I will remain apolitical and non-partisan. Second, I will strive for accurate and honest reporting. For my third promise, if I can’t be helpful, I’ll try to be funny. I will continue to write about what I know; therefore, I focus on U.S. federal agencies involved in funding communities through grant programs. My favorites are Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and especially FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Another favorite is local fraud – fraud within municipal and state government – especially in New England. What could possibly go wrong by looking closely at all of the data available ?Each episode will be between 30 and 45 minutes. The script of the episode will be published in whole on my website: https://ChristinaMoore.us.

In a typical year, 75% of FEMA fund recipients, usually local governments and non-profits fail to follow the law. While the original analysis I did has aged some over the last four years, I’ll bet we’re still looking at massive failures with disaster related funds. First, show you how I derived this failure rate. Second, I’ll show you the significant risks you and I have when communities fail to manage FEMA and federal grants well. Third, I am going to place blame. You and I know that during these months I have done little to name names and point fingers
