Inspection report on Treasury Offset Program issued

The IG Inspections Division has issued a report on its inspection of procedures to maximize recovery of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program overpayments through the Treasury Offset Program.

The inspection focused on two objectives: Assessing the effectiveness of procedures used to maximize the accuracy of data submitted to the U.S. Department of the Treasury Treasury Offset Program (TOP), and determine if errors in data submitted to the TOP are effectively resolved and resubmitted.

The inspection found that overall Texas Health and Human Services has effective policies, procedures, and practices to maximize the accuracy of data submissions. However, there are opportunities to increase recovery of SNAP overpayments. Read the report.
