Project Announcement: Audit of DoD-Funded Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education Programs (Project No. D2022-D000RK-0179.000)


We plan to begin the subject audit in September 2022. The objective of this audit is to determine whether DoD-funded science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education programs were developed and assessed in accordance with Federal and DoD policies. Specifically, we will determine whether DoD Components have effective performance measures for the post-secondary DoD-funded STEM education programs to: (1) provide underserved and underrepresented students STEM education and career opportunities, and (2) assess their impact on the STEM career and internship candidate pool. We may revise the objective as the audit proceeds, and we will also consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
