au-dit (noun) - a methodical examination and review What is the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General Office of Audit? We’re a team of auditors and evaluators helping to maintain the integrity and accountability of America’s Postal Service, its revenue and assets, and its workforce. We do this by conducting independent audits and reviews of the Postal Service. Each year we develop an audit plan with projects focusing on the perceived risks facing the Postal Service. We also include projects that address stakeholders’ concerns. The overarching goal of our audits is to provide Postal Service management with information on how to best address the challenges they are facing. Why do we blog? To put it simply – we blog to get your ideas on how to make the Postal Service better! We look at our blog as a “virtual think tank” where Postal Service employees, customers, and stakeholders can present their thoughts and solutions for a more efficient and effective Postal Service. We’ve received a wealth of information that has helped us with our audits and has given us ideas for future work. How can you help? Let us know what you think! •What are some critical challenges facing the Postal Service that you would like to see us explore through our audits? •What could the Postal Service do to improve its service to you? •What could the Postal Service do to increase its revenues or reduce its costs? •What other ideas do you have? Would you like to learn more about us? Please visit Reading Room section our website where you can review our published reports to Postal Service management as well as our semiannual reports to Congress or just learn more about us. We also welcome your comments on our upcoming audits and reviews, which we feature on our Audit Projects page.
