Inspector General, Department of Defense Alexandria United States
Public Law 106-531, the Reports Consolidation Act of 2000, requires that Inspectors General prepare an annual statement that summarizes what they consider to be the most serious management and performance challenges facing the agency. By statute, this statement is required to be included in the Departments Agency Financial Report. The following is the Department of Defense Office of Inspector Generals DoD OIG statement regarding the top management and performance challenges facing the DoD. The DoD OIG identified these challenges based on DoD OIG oversight work, research, and judgment oversight work done by other components within the DoD and oversight projects by the Government Accountability Office. While we reviewed DoD statements, documents, and assessments of the critical issues it faces, we identified these challenges independently.
