“(a) The Director shall designate cognizant agencies for audits conducted pursuant to this chapter.
“(b) A cognizant agency shall—
“(1) ensure that audits are made in a timely manner and in accordance with the requirements of this chapter;
“(2) ensure that the audit reports and corrective action plans made pursuant to section 7502 of this title are transmitted to the appropriate Federal officials; and
“(3)(A) coordinate, to the extent practicable, audits done by or under contract with Federal agencies that are in addition to the audits conducted pursuant to this chapter; and (B) ensure that such additional audits build upon the audits conducted pursuant to this chapter.”
