GSA OIG Reports on Semiannual Savings, Fraud Cases

The General Services Administration's inspector general office has released a report on the agency's activities from April to September this year, highlighting audits on cost savings and performance.

GSA Office of the Inspector General said it identified $79M in potential savings during the period, but also discovered various insufficiencies, criminal cases and fraudulent transactions, with a total of 30 audits issued.

An assessment determined that GSA's Office of Mission Assurance needs an updated continuity plan for the agency, including executive functions. OMA's national continuity plan has not undergone an update since early 2012.

Audits also identified a number of contractors that submitted inaccurate information, did not comply with rules on price reduction and overcharged federal customers.

The recommended savings amount of $79M consists of $66.2M in funds that have the potential for better use and $13.1M in questionable expenses. GSA OIG recommended total potential cost savings of $219M for fiscal year 2019, with $122M recovered.
