Office of Recovery Act Coordination (ORAC)
HHS established the Office of Recovery Act Coordination (ORAC) to ensure HHS meets the requirements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act or ARRA) pertaining to Mandatory, Formula, and Discretionary Grants funds that come to HHS for distribution.
The ORAC reports to the Assistant Secretary for Financial Resources (ASFR). HHS Operating Divisions (OPDIVs) and Office of the Secretary Staff Divisions (STAFFDIVs) provide most Recovery Act information to ORAC as it coordinates and oversees all ARRA activities for the Department. Activities include the following:
- Timely reporting.
- Maintaining a repository of official HHS ARRA information.
- Establishing and tracking performance outcomes.
- Mitigating risks.
- Keeping the public constantly informed through the Web and other means of communication.
The primary source of information for the public about the Recovery Act is http://www.recovery.gov. Our public HHS Recovery site provides Department-wide information http://www.hhs.gov/recovery. Every cabinet level agency that receives ARRA funding has a similar Recovery site.
