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.

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 two reports today concluding that GSA-managed facilities are at an increased risk of unauthorized access due to GSA’s lack of controls over facility specific building access badges and deficiencies in GSA’s management of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards issued to contractors.  Unauthorized access to these facilities increases the risk of a security event such as an active shooter, terrorist attack, theft of government property, or exposure of sensitive information.
