About the Agency
We are seeking a highly qualified and motivated individual to serve as the Deputy Assistant Inspector General for Real Property Audits and be a proactive member of our team. The Office of Inspector General (OIG) for the General Services Administration (GSA) is one of the original OIGs established by the Inspector General Act of 1978. The OIGs were created as independent and objective entities within an agency (A) to promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in the administration of the agency, and (B) to prevent and detect fraud and abuse in agency programs and operations. The OIGs report to the agency head and Congress through semi-annual and other reports.
The GSA OIG operates as an autonomous entity within GSA under a presidentially appointed, Senate confirmed Inspector General who supervises a diverse team of over 300 professionals in headquarters' administrative, legal, and operational components and in regional operational offices throughout the country.
The GSA OIG is dedicated to protecting the public interest by bringing about positive changes in the performance, accountability, and integrity of GSA programs and operations. Oversight is provided through auditing, inspections and evaluations, and investigations of GSA's extensive procurement, real property, and related programs and operations, which primarily support other federal agencies. OIG oversight components report their findings and recommend courses of action to promote efficiency and economy in the GSA’s activities. Last fiscal year, our OIG professionals’ efforts resulted in $243 million in criminal, civil, administrative, and other recoveries; over $1.4 billion in GSA management decisions that agreed with GSA OIG audit recommendations; over 40 successful criminal prosecutions; and numerous suspensions and debarments. Applicants are encouraged to review the work and accomplishments of the GSA OIG on our website, https://www.gsaig.gov/.
