This book by the Office of Audit Services (OAS), Office of the Inspector General of the US Department of Health and Human Services is an important read. It explores the ways in which NIH and its viral research grant awardee EcoHealth Alliance have failed to comply with Federal requirements leading to unallowable costs and an unsatisfactory compliance rate. This book was written by the highly knowledgeable staff at HHS's OIG whose expertise spans across federal oversight as well as compliance. With decades of experience working on high profile audits related to disruptive healthcare technologies among other topics, they are aware like no other how government oversight is essential for public health research initiatives. This book outlines precisely why it is necessary for stakeholders to ensure effective monitoring. I urge readers interested in governmental accountability to pick up this timely book today! It offers insight into how transparency within these processes can help us lead healthier lives. Smarter investment of research funds will provide maximum benefits as efficiently as possible. It's a story of frustration, failure, and accountability: Follow this enthralling drama as it plays out in the pages of OIG audit findings, which, admittedly are, sometmes, a bit lacking in sizzle. It becomes easier to pay attention when you remember that the failure to monitor grant awards in Wuhan contributed to a the release of a global pandemic that at this printing has already killed seven million people.
