Office of Audits
The Office of Audits’ mission is to add value by providing timely, cost effective, professional, and useful products and services to our clients and stakeholders. Our ultimate goal is to help improve GSA, while simultaneously protecting the integrity of its operations. We accomplish our mission by identifying and reporting on the challenges facing GSA management. In fulfilling our mission, we rely on an open flow of communication with all of our customers. As we perform our work, we will continue to foster a professional relationship with our customers and recognize our mutual interest in helping GSA improve its operations and accomplish its goals.
We focus our audit efforts on key aspects of GSA programs and operations. In particular, we examine procurement issues facing the Agency, as well as GSA’s asset management and use of technology. We also provide contract audit services to assist GSA contracting officials in carrying out their procurement responsibilities and obtaining the best value for federal customers and the American taxpayer. Furthermore, we provide oversight of the annual audit of GSA’s financial statements and GSA’s information technology security program for Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) compliance.
We work with Congress and its Committees, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency, and other parties on GSA-specific and governmentwide issues. We provide: audit, advisory, and analytical services; prompt answers to questions and testimony; and other professional advice.
