    Report Contents

    Each year, in accordance with the Reports Consolidation Act of 2000,1 the Office of Inspector General (OIG) for the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM) identifies the most significant management and performance challenges facing the agency and briefly assesses progress in addressing those challenges. The resulting report is included in the agency’s annual performance and accountability report.

    OIG identified the following management challenges in fiscal year (FY) 2022:

    • Information Security and Management
    • Financial Management
    • Contract and Grant Management

    These issues go to the core of USAGM’s programs and operations. Continued attention to these concerns will improve USAGM’s operations and, accordingly, its ability to fulfill its underlying mission. OIG provides this report so that, taken together with the work OIG produces throughout the year, USAGM can institute appropriate measures to improve operational efficiency and effectiveness.
