1 Table excludes estimates for HCFAC collections.  Table also excludes non-HCFAC reimbursable funding.  In FY 2014, OIG obligated $15 million in non-HCAC reimbursable funding.  The estimate for FY 2015 is $21 million.  This estimate includes funds from section 6201 of the Affordable Care Act for OIG to evaluate a nationwide program for national and State background checks on direct patient access employees of long-term -care facilities and providers.  OIG obligated $56 thousand for this effort in FY 2014.

2 PHHS oversight includes oversight of programs authorized in Title I of the ACA and administered by CCIIO, a component of CMS.

3 In FY 2015, OIG’s Discretionary BA includes $1.5 million, transferred from the Food and Drug Administration, consistent with the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015.

4 In the FY 2015 Enacted column, the amount displayed reflects a sequestration reduction of $14.7 million taken at the HCFAC account level at the non-exempt nondefense mandatory rate of 7.3 percent.
