Management Challenges

Since the Reports Consolidation Act of 2000, OIG has annually reported on the Department’s progress in addressing its most critical management challenges.  OIG assists USDA to provide the best possible service to the American public and domestic agriculture.  To accomplish this aim, we must work together to identify agency programs and core management functions that may be vulnerable to waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement.  These vulnerabilities can affect USDA’s ability to achieve its mission.
