The Office of Inspector General's ( OlG ) Work Plan sets forth various projects to be addressed during the fiscal year by the Office of Audit Services, Office of Evaluation and Inspections, Office of Investigations, and Office of Counsel to the Inspector General. The Work Plan includes projects planned in each of the Department's major entities: the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services; the public health agencies; the Administrations for Children & Families; and Administration on Aging. Information is also provided on projects related to issues that cut across departmental programs, including State and local government use of Federal funds, as well as the functional areas of the Office of the Secretary of Health & Human Services (HHS). Some of the projects described in the Work Plan are statutorily required, such as the audit of the Department's financial statements, which is mandated by the Government Management Reform Act.
OIG does not provide additional details on jobs to be undertaken or information on the status of jobs contained in its Work Plan. For example, although estimated issue dates are provided in the Work Plan, we would not provide revised estimates or current status.
The Office of Inspector General's (OIG) Work Plan will next appear in January 2014. This change from the usual October release will better align with priorities OIG has set for the coming year, a time of continuing fiscal challenges.
The HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) Work Plan for Fiscal Year 2013 provides brief descriptions of activities that OIG plans to initiate or continue with respect to HHS programs and operations in fiscal year 2013. The Work Plan describes the primary objectives and provides for each review its internal identification code, the year in which we expect one or more reports to be issued as a result of the review, and indicates whether the work was in progress at the start of the fiscal year or will be a new start during the year. When reports are issued, they are posted to OIG's website. OIG's email list subscribers automatically receive notification when new reports are posted to the website.
