2005 Inspector General Semiannual Report to Congress
am pleased to provide the Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) Semiannual Report to Congress for the reporting period ending September 30, 2005. This report highlights our most significant accomplishments in identifying areas of Department of Energy operations most vulnerable to waste, fraud, and mismanagement. During this reporting period, we continued to assist the Department’s management in addressing its mission-related priorities. As a direct result of our audits and inspections, significant opportunities for programmatic cost savings, operational efficiencies, and enhanced results were identified.
