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.

 

Season's Greetings

Pushing the Envelope wishes our readers a joyful holiday season and a prosperous New Year. We will take a break this week, but we encourage you to read over the past year’s blogs and let us know what you think on any of the wide range of topics we blogged on in 2018.

We post comments as they come in, even if you comment on a blog that ran a few months ago. We often see older blogs getting new comments and generating a new thread of discussion, which helps provide a current outlook on past work. These comments can serve to inform future work.

 

Our Semiannual Report to Congress

Like clockwork they arrive: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and then the SARC.

The SARC?! Yes, we submit our Semiannual Report to Congress, or SARC, in the late fall and spring each year. This SARC outlines our work and activities for the six-month period of April 1 through September 30, 2018, and serves as one way we fulfill our mission of ensuring efficiency, accountability, and integrity in the U.S. Postal Service.
