What’s New

Health Equity Report for 2017.  This report from HRSA’s Office of Health Equity addresses disparities in three priority areas:  mental health, opioid use and childhood obesity.  It reports on trends in health equity and health disparities in the U.S., providing statistics and information on multiple program areas, including: maternal and child health, primary care, access, quality, HIV/AIDS, mental and behavioral health, chronic disease, health promotion, health workforce, rural versus urban, and geographic disparities.

Fraudulent Activity in Federal Grants Management System.  The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is supporting an active investigation by the GSA Office of Inspector General (OIG) into alleged, third party fraudulent activity in its System for Award Management (SAM), which manages federally-funded grants.  It has been confirmed that none of the HHS accounts were impacted.  However, effective immediately, all new organizations that want to register at sam.gov, must follow specific procedures.   These include requiring an original, signed notarized letter identifying the authorized entity administrator for the entity associated with the DUNS number before a new SAM.gov entity registration will be activated.
