Office of Inspector General planning five audits for 2015

In its 2015 Office of Audit Workplan, the Office of Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Labor includes plans for discretionary audits of five OSHA programs, including the agency's Whistleblower Protection Program and its National and Local Emphasis Programs. Discretionary audits are based on risk and potential impact on the agency's mission and goals.

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) at the U.S. Department of Labor conducts audits to review the effectiveness, efficiency, economy, and integrity of all DOL programs and operations, including those performed by its contractors and grantees. This work is conducted in order to determine whether the programs and operations are in compliance with the applicable laws and regulations, DOL resources are efficiently and economically being utilized, and DOL programs achieve their intended results.
