- Full Report:
Pursuant to an agency request, GAO reviewed allegations by a former employee of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office of Inspector General (OIG) regarding the settlement agreement between HUD and one of its management contractors. GAO noted that: (1) the former OIG employee was unable to provide corraborative evidence to support his allegations against OIG, and did not direct investigators to any credible source of information to substantiate his allegations against HUD officials; (2) there was no evidence to support the former employee's allegation that HUD unduly influenced the settlement agreement and compromised the audit report; (3) changes in the audit draft resulted from the normal supervisory review process; and (4) there was no evidence of undue influence regarding the audit and investigative process.
