The agency has implemented past recommendations and has made progress in multiple areas of management, SBA Office of the Inspector General said Friday.
The report shows the agency has either fully implemented or made substantial progress on 23 of 25 issues across eight areas including small business contracting, information technology leadership and human capital.
Other areas are: grant management oversight, SBA loan program risk management, business development program, disaster assistance and reduction of improper payments for quality assurance.
