OIG Special Agents at Work

In a recent blog, we noted how we organize our work. Our blogs tend to feature our audit work because it allows us to seek input and feedback that can shape ongoing or future work.

That doesn’t mean it’s quiet in the Office of Investigations. In fact, there’s always a lot going on there. Our investigative work is organized around a handful of areas: mail theft, financial fraud, contract fraud, health care fraud, and narcotics.

How We Organize Our Work

You may have noticed that most of our blogs are based on our recent audit reports, which lets us highlight some of our work and solicit feedback from readers. Stakeholder input often provides ideas for future reports. 

In fact, our ideas for audit work must be balanced between stakeholder requests, projects mandated by law, and discretionary work. Projects mandated by law include last week’s blog on the U.S. Postal Service’s inventory of unused space. 

 

OIG Is Open!

We’re back! The partial government shutdown has ended, and the OIG is back in business. Our website, Hotline, blog, and all our social media activities are up and running, and we’re anxious to hear from you.

You may have wondered why we were furloughed but the Postal Service was not.

The Postal Service’s operations are funded from the sale of postage and fees. Hence, it was fully operational during the shutdown.
