The GSA Office of Inspector General (OIG) did not sponsor any conference in Fiscal Year 2018 where the costs exceeded $100,000. The OIG sponsored several internal meetings and events for OIG employees such as audit management meetings and law enforcement training. Each OIG sponsored event was designed to minimize overall costs while providing a maximum amount of training or work related activities for the attendees.
OIG employees also received training at several events sponsored by others. They attended these events in support of the OIG mission, which is to combat fraud, waste, and abuse and save taxpayer money. In total, the OIG spent approximately $161,907 for 607 attendees who received training at various events throughout the year.
