The Office of Inspector General (OIG) is an independent unit established by law which is responsible for promoting economy, efficiency, and effectiveness and detecting and preventing fraud, waste, and mismanagement in the General Services Administration's (GSA) programs and operations. Our mission is to help the GSA to effectively carry out its responsibilities and to protect the public interest by bringing about positive changes in the performance, accountability, and integrity of GSA programs and operations.

We meet our mission through:

  • Independent audits and reviews of contracts, data and financial systems, information technology, and programs.
  • Criminal and civil investigations.
  • Reviews of proposed legislation and regulations.
  • Consultation with GSA, congressional, and law enforcement officials.

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Office of Inspector General (OIG) issued a report today concluding that GSA’s 18F organization has experienced a cumulative net loss totaling over $31 million between fiscal year 2014 and the third quarter of fiscal year 2016.  This is due to 18F’s inaccurate financial projections, increased staffing levels, and the amount of staff time spent on non-billable activities, all of which have affected cost recovery.  The OIG started the evaluation in December 2015 after several senior GSA officials expressed concerns about the management of 18F to the OIG. 

Earlier today, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York (the Office) filed fraud charges in Brooklyn federal court against Plaza Construction LLC, successor to Plaza Construction Corp. (Plaza Construction), one of the largest construction firms in New York City.  Plaza Construction is charged with mail and wire fraud conspiracy for improperly billing its clients more than $2.2 million over a thirteen-year period for hours not worked and for inserting a hidden surcharge into its bills for the purpose of obtaining payments to offset administrative costs. 

Earlier this week, a General Services Administration (GSA) Office of Inspector General (OIG) special agent in San Francisco, California, recovered a Works Progress Administration (WPA) painting, Landscape #23, by WPA artist Dong Kingman.
