GAO was asked to investigate a possible unreported impoundment of certain funds intended to be made available to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to carry out activities authorized under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980. The funds were derived from the Hazardous Substance Response Trust Fund or Superfund. Specifically, concerns were expressed over the delays in transferring these funds to HHS. GAO determined that there did not appear to be an impoundment of the funds.
