I am pleased to submit our Semiannual Report to the U.S. Congress, summarizing the work and accomplishments of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Office of Inspector General from April 1, 2023, to September 30, 2023.
During this semiannual period, my first full reporting period as Inspector General, I have begun to identify areas of change associated with mission attainment, strategic vision, and staffing.
Also, during this reporting period, I was able to fill several critical vacancies within the office. I hired a new Deputy Inspector General, and two new GS 1811 Criminal Investigators. I was also able to fill the Counsel to the Inspector General position internally by transferring the incumbent GS 1811 Criminal Investigator into the position.
As the Inspector General, I plan to continue to partner strategically with our internal and external stakeholders to assist in the identification of innovative approaches and methods to help enhance the Agency’s program and operational effectiveness and efficiency. I would also personally like to thank the OIG’s dedicated team of talented professionals, whose resilience and flexibility during the reporting period has allowed the OIG to continue its vigilance in detecting and preventing waste, fraud, abuse, and misconduct in the Agency’s operations and programs. I extend a special thanks to Chair Burrows, the EEOC Commissioners, senior Agency leadership, and their staff for their ongoing cooperation, and Congress for its continuing support of the mission of the OIG.
