Last week, the Department of the Treasury announced a new initiative aimed at increasing fairness and transparency within the Department’s compliance and enforcement practices. “The Treasury Department provides critical services that touch the lives of millions of American families, workers, and businesses,” said Deputy Secretary Adeyemo. “[The] announcement is part of a comprehensive strategy directed by Secretary Yellen to promote fairness and accountability in our compliance and enforcement efforts as we safeguard against waste, fraud, and abuse.”
- Review existing communication, compliance monitoring, and enforcement policies and procedures.
- Consult with key stakeholders to identify ways to strengthen the fair and impartial enforcement and compliance actions.
- Develop methods to regularly test compliance and enforcement systems to detect disparate impacts.
- Regularly report to Deputy Secretary.
