The GSA Office of Inspector General (OIG) did not sponsor any conference in Fiscal Year 2015 where the costs exceeded $100,000. The OIG sponsored several internal meetings and events such as audit management meetings. Each OIG-sponsored event was designed to minimize overall costs while providing a maximum amount of work-related activities for the attendees. Individuals in the OIG received training at several events sponsored by others.
OIG staff attended these functions to enhance our mission, which is to add value by providing timely, cost effective, professional, and useful products and services to our client and stakeholders. In total, the OIG spent approximately $150,000 for over 190 employees who received training at various events throughout the year.
