Fiscal Year 2021 Oversight Plan

The Oversight Plan describes the specific oversight projects the DoD OIG intends to conduct in FY 2020, and how those projects are related to the top management challenges facing the DoD.  The Oversight Plan and Top DoD Management Challenges documents are related.  The Oversight Plan is organized by management challenge.  Each chapter provides a summary of a particular challenge, followed by an inventory of the ongoing and planned oversight projects that directly align to that challenge.  The Oversight Plan assists the DoD OIG in fulfilling its mission to detect and deter waste, fraud, and abuse in DoD programs and operations; improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the DoD; and help ensure ethical conduct throughout the DoD.

Top DoD Management Challenges – Fiscal Year 2021

The Top DoD Management Challenges document identifies the top management and performance challenges impacting the DoD for FY 2021 and beyond.  Each Inspector General is required by law to prepare this annual statement summarizing what the IG considers the “most serious management and performance challenges facing the agency.”  This report provides Congress and the DoD’s civilian and military leaders an independent assessment of the management and performance challenges confronting the DoD.  Finally, the Top DoD Management Challenges document must be included in the DoD’s annual financial report.
