Semiannual Report to Congress 2017 Volume 2

Reporting Period April 1 through September 29
When we work together to eliminate waste and mismanagement, we can devote more time and resources to the mission.   The Office of Inspector General is essential to this work.    CNCS employees must take an active role in supporting OIG’s activities . . . . To that end, all CNCS personnel are expected to provide full, complete, and timely access to information requested by OIG. Finally, because accountability makes us better, everyone at CNCS has a responsibility to report instances of fraud, waste, abuse

What We Do

The Corporation for National and Community Service Office of Inspector General (CNCS-OIG) is an independent office within CNCS that provides oversight of the agency's programs and operations to protect the integrity of national service. CNCS-OIG performs audits, evaluations and investigations of CNCS, its grantees and contractors, to promote efficiency and effectiveness, and to prevent and detect fraud, waste and abuse. The Office is staffed with auditors, investigators, attorneys, information technology and other specialists who ensure that we meet our core functions and responsibilities.

Maintaining close working relationships with CNCS and its awardees help us focus our efforts on priority areas and facilitate our proactive educational efforts.  The Office consults CNCS in developing plans and obtains agency feedback on reports before they are issued. Semiannually, CNCS-OIG submits a summary report of its activities to the Congress and CNCS leadership.
