The Ukraine related activities of the Department of State (Department) are a top oversight priority for the Office of Inspector General (OIG). OIG has three objectives for this inspection: (1)to assess whether policy goals and objectives are being effectively achieved; (2) to determine whether resources are being used and managed with maximum efficiency, effectiveness, and economy; and (3) to determine whether internal management controls have been instituted to ensure quality of performance and reduce the likelihood of mismanagement.
Mission Poland has played a crucial role in supporting Ukraine against Russia’s unjustified war of aggression. Poland has facilitated the entry of millions of Ukrainian refugees and currently hosts about a million Ukrainian refugees – the largest number of any country in the world. As a frontline state bordering Ukraine and a NATO ally, Poland has been a steadfast partner of the United States in fostering regional security and economic growth. The United States resumed significant security and humanitarian assistance to Poland in 2022 to strengthen Poland’s ability to respond to unprecedented challenges related to the war. Mission Poland assisted Embassy Kyiv during the evacuation, closure, and reopening of the mission and continues to serve as a vital lifeline that supports embassy operations in Ukraine.
OIG has ongoing projects related to Ukraine and will be announcing additional projects in coming months. Visit OIG’s Ukraine Response Oversight page to follow our work in this area and contact us at [email protected] for additional information.
