The Semiannual Report to the Congress has been issued for the reporting period of October 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014. The report summarizes the scope of DoD IG’s oversight activities, as well as the contributions of the audit and investigative agencies of the military departments. During the reporting period, DoD IG issued 52 reports identifying $3.6 million in potential monetary benefits. Defense Criminal Investigative Service investigations were the basis for 48 arrests, 171 criminal charges, 147 criminal convictions, 82 suspensions, and 81 debarments, as well as $1.5 billion in monetary benefits to the Government.
