This is a publication by GAO's Inspector General that concerns internal GAO operations. This report was submitted to the Comptroller General in accordance with Section 5 of the Government Accountability Office Act of 2008. The report summarizes the activities of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) for the first reporting period of fiscal year 2018. During this reporting period, OIG issued two audit reports, and continued fieldwork on three audits. We also closed 3 investigations and opened 10 new investigations. In addition, we processed 60 hotline complaints, which generally did not involve GAO's programs and operations. Our heightened focus on key management challenges in such areas as human capital management, and information technology and security continues. Other continuing priorities include contract management operations and strengthening controls for ensuring the quality and reliability of GAO's DATA Act submissions.

We remained active in the GAO and OIG communities by briefing new GAO employees on our audit and investigative missions, and participating on Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency committees and working groups. Details of these activities and other OIG accomplishments are provided in the report.
