Report Description: 
The Semiannual Report to Congress summarizes the results of VA OIG oversight, provides statistical information, and lists all 169 work products issued from April 1 to September 30, 2023. During this reporting period, VA OIG audits, evaluations, investigations, inspections, and other reviews identified more than $1.14 billion in monetary impact for a return on investment of $11 for every dollar spent. The OIG hotline received and triaged over 18,000 contacts in the past six months—to help identify wrongdoing and address concerns with VA activities. Also during the past six months, special agents opened 230 investigations and closed 190, with efforts leading to 95 arrests. Collectively, the OIG’s work also resulted in 581 administrative sanctions and corrective actions during the six-month reporting period.
