The Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended, requires that the Inspector
General report semiannually to the head of the agency and the Congress on
the activities of the office during the six month periods ending March 31
and September 30. The purpose of the reports is to keep the agency
head and the Congress currently informed of significant findings and
recommendations of the Inspector General.
Our office conducts audits, reviews and inspections to identify ways to
improve the quality and timeliness of service to railroad beneficiaries
and to protect the integrity of the trust funds.
We prepare a strategic plan to identify goals and priorities as well as the
means to achieve them with current resources. Strategic planning allows OIG
managers to focus efforts to improve the quality of service to our customers.
