Weekly COVID-19 Oversight & Enforcement Report - July 2020

Several news outlets reported that former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Joseph Dunford is the leading contender to chair the Congressional Oversight Commission—a position that, under the CARES Act, must be jointly selected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

GAO found that the SBA is not prepared to address fraud risks associated with its small-business loans, and that the IRS and Treasury made payments to more than a million deceased individuals. Subcommittee Chairman Jim Clyburn (D-SC) said the report “details how missteps led to ‘significant delays in testing,’ shortages in critical supplies, and ‘significant risk’ of fraud in the [PPP].”
