Investigation activities are also noted, including highlights of cases presented and an update of previously reported investigation. Descriptions of steps taken by the OIG to improve the management of internal operations and aid programs covers documents that evaluate or prescribe management practices, as well as internal control reviews and measures to improve the disposal of funds. Miscellaneous other matters reviewed include legislation and regulations affecting the economy of the department. Appendixes include a list of audits for the period covered in the report and a schedule of accounts receivable. Finally, two guides to ethical conduct issued by the OIG are exhibited. (MCG)
