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 six-month reporting period ending March 31, 2019. During the reporting period, the OIG continued or initiated fieldwork on three audits and completed a peer review of the Office of Inspector General at the Corporation for National and Community Service. The OIG closed 11 investigations and opened 4 new investigations. In addition, the OIG processed 53 hotline complaints, many of which were referred to other OIGs for action because the matters involved were within their jurisdictions. At the end of March, the OIG issued an alert to GAO management based on vulnerabilities identified during an investigation into a privacy incident due to unauthorized activity by a GAO employee. The OIG continues to focus on GAO management challenge areas—including human capital management and information technology.

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