The session addressed the role of the Office of Inspectors Generals (OIG) in combating fraud, waste and abuse and promoting efficiency and effectiveness. The session focused on: 1) balancing the complexities associated with a dual reporting requirement (both to the head of agency and congress — “straddling the barbed wire fence”), and public transparency obligations; 2) OIG responsibilities in countering fraud, including program fraud and official misconduct (case examples and areas of collaboration to be discussed); and 3) challenges and opportunities, including leveraging emerging trends, data analytics and risk assessments across the federal landscape to counter fraud.
