The DoD Office of Inspector General is performing audits of DoD s implementation of Public Law 111-5, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, February 17, 2009 Recovery Act. Our objective was to determine whether DoD and its Components are implementing the Recovery Act.1 Specifically, we evaluated whether TRICARE Management Activity TMA and Navy Medicine West NAVMEDWEST personnel properly justified and planned the Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton NHCP Replacement project, valued at 506 million, to ensure the appropriate use of Recovery Act funds. We also evaluated the effectiveness of Government controls over contractor s performance and reporting on the NHCP replacement project, including contracts awarded to qualified small businesses. The NHCP Replacement project at Camp Pendleton, California, will result in a multistory replacement hospital with an inpatient medical facility, ancillary departments, emergency care, primary care, specialty care clinics, and support spaces. Naval Facilities Engineering Command NAVFAC Southwest SW personnel awarded a site planning contract for the NHCP Replacement project on July 1, 2009, and the contract to develop the design concept for the hospital on September 18, 2009. NAVFAC SW personnel awarded the designbuild contract for the NHCP Replacement project on September 1, 2010, and construction work on its foundation began on June 6, 2011. The Navy expects to complete the hospital by January 7, 2014.
