OIG provides independent and objective oversight that promotes economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in the programs and operations of EEOC. OIG’s program integrity and oversight activities are shaped by legislative and budgetary requirements and adhere to professional standards established by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), and the Inspector General community.
The U.S. Congress established the Office of Inspector General (OIG) at EEOC through the 1988 amendments to the Inspector General Act of 1978. These amendments expanded the authority of designated Federal entities to create independent and objective OIGs. We remain committed to our mission and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (https://www.eeoc.gov/) efforts to achieve Justice and Equality in the Workplace.
I am pleased to provide this strategic plan issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, (EEOC) Office of Inspector General (OIG) for fiscal years 2018 through 2021. In developing this strategic plan, OIG established specific goals and performance measures consistent with the spirit of the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010. GPRA is the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993.
Our aim is to continue to help the EEOC in addressing its most important challenges. Our work focuses on assessing the Agency’s progress in achieving mission-critical outcomes. The Strategic Plan also highlights key strategies and indicators for attaining and measuring results. This plan also allows flexibility to assess, anticipate, and respond to new challenges and we will update it as appropriate.
As OIG works toward these goals, I am confident that EEOC programs and taxpayer dollars will be better protected and that the programs will better serve the people who use them.
