Semiannual Report to Congress, Issue 88

Report Description: 
The Semiannual Report to Congress summarizes the results of VA OIG oversight, provides statistical information, and lists all reports issued from April 1 to September 30, 2022. During this reporting period, VA OIG audits, evaluations, investigations, inspections, and other reviews identified more than $1.4 billion in monetary impact, bringing the fiscal year’s total to nearly $4.6 billion in monetary impact with a return on investment of $24 for every dollar spent. The OIG published 309 products for the full year, with 166 products released during this reporting period alone. The OIG hotline received and triaged nearly 18,400 contacts in the past six months—more than 36,000 for the year—to help identify wrongdoing and address concerns with VA activities. Also during the past six months, special agents opened 178 investigations and closed 213, with efforts leading to 135 arrests. Collectively, the OIG’s work also resulted in nearly 600 administrative sanctions and corrective actions during the six-month reporting period.
