Welcome to Iowa's Economic Recovery
Accountability & Transparency
The State of Iowa is responsible for reporting the use of federal funding provided through American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ("Recovery Act" or "ARRA") and Education Jobs and Medicaid Assistance Act of 2010 (portion known as "Education Jobs Fund"), as well as, the financial, result and job information a quarterly basis to the federal government and the citizens of Iowa.
The purpose of such reporting is to provide answers to questions such as:
Centralized Reporting in Iowa
The State of Iowa is a centralized reporting state and uses a centralized reporting system to collect information from all agencies, organizations and vendors receiving Recovery Act and Education Job funds that flows through any Iowa State agency or institution. The Iowa Department of Management has provided reporting guidance to facilitate quarterly reporting. Quarterly reported data is available to the public 30 days after the end of the quarter on Iowa's Recovery Data Browser and federally at www.recovery.gov. It is subsequently updated as reported data is corrected.
Stimulus Fraud Hotline
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has created a stimulus fraud hotline, FraudNet, for citizens in all 50 states to report allegations of fraud, waste, abuse, or mismanagement of federal stimulus funds. The public can call 1-800-424-5454 or send an firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, GAO's FraudNET is also able to process allegations via a web form.
