Ukraine-related activities of the Department of State (Department) and the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM) are a top oversight priority for the Office of Inspector General (OIG). The complexity, scale, and timing of efforts in response to the situation in Ukraine demand robust oversight. We are leveraging our extensive knowledge of the programs and operations of the Department and USAGM to develop a plan that provides timely and critical information for Congress and the U.S. taxpayer.
Multiple federal agencies are responding to the crisis and OIG is coordinating with offices across the inspector general community, including inspector general offices at the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). A variety of working groups, comprised of auditors, inspectors, and investigators, are meeting on a regular basis to collaborate and achieve results.
At OIG, we are deploying our resources, including recent supplemental funding, to target fraud, waste, and abuse in three high-risk areas:
- Security assistance
- Humanitarian and economic assistance
- Diplomatic operations and programs
