EStablished in 1980 to help improve management effectiveness, the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Inspector General (OIG) is responsible for audit, investigative, fraud detection and prevention, and some security services for the Department. In this document--its first semi-annual report--the OIG first describes its organizational structure, staff selection, budget and resources, and planning and training activities. The report then presents data on OIG audits conducted and resolved, the amounts of money saved or claimed, and the problem of the backlog of audits existing when the office was formed. OIG's investigative activities are reviewed next, detailing the cases under investigation, the educational programs involved, and the results of the investigations. The report also notes OIG's reviews of proposed legislation and regulations. Appendices provide organizational charts and further data on audits completed and complaints received. (Author/RW)
