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.

 

Age Matters to Advertisers

Ever watch an ad on YouTube and think, “I don’t get it?” It’s likely the ad was directed at a certain customer segment – like, say, millennials. Companies target their advertisements in a variety of ways to reach different types of customers, and age segmentation is one of the most common.

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. 

 

Top Postal Stories of 2018

People love lists.

Our annual blog listing the top ten postal stories of the just-completed year is always a reader favorite — even if a little later than usual this year. This year, as in many past years, we had plenty of topics to choose from. What made this year a little unusual was just how many prominent postal stories were in the news — and for a long time. We expect to hear more about several of the topics below in 2019.
