Stimulus mistakes corrected on Recovery.gov
Government officials on Wednesday corrected mistakes in the reports submitted by recipients of economic stimulus funding to Recovery.gov, the government's stimulus-tracking Web site.
The corrections were made at the request of the Office of Management and Budget, Devaney said. That's a reversal of OMB guidance issued earlier this year, which said that mistakes on quarterly stimulus reports could only be corrected for a month after their submission.
The decision to correct any mistakes follows several national news reports and criticism from senior lawmakers that pinned responsibility for the mistakes on the Obama administration. But, as colleague Alec MacGillis noted on Tuesday, the onus of responsibility rests with the recipients, not the government.
