Project Announcement: Audit of the Defense Health Agency’s Controls Over Health Records of HighProfile DoD Personnel (Project No. D2020-D000AW-0037.000)


We plan to begin the subject audit in February 2020. The objective of this audit is to determine whether the Defense Health Agency effectively controlled access to health records of high-profile DoD personnel, according to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). We may revise the objective as the audit proceeds, and we will also consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
