1  The performance measure for percent of initial inquiries completed will change beginning in FY19. This line reports the actual performance under the current target measurement of 79 percent.
2  With the introduction of the Office of Inspector General's (OIG) 2017 revised Procedures Manual, the OIG has redefined the point at which an initial inquiry is either closed or reclassified as an audit, inspection, investigation, evaluation, or review. This change has the effect of moving detailed analysis work, previously completed during the preliminary inquiry stage, to the audit/inspection/investigation stage of our work.
3  The performance measure for percent of audit/inspection/investigation reports completed will change beginning in FY19. This line reports the actual performance under the current target measurement of 50 percent.
4  With the introduction of the Office of Inspector General's (OIG) 2017 revised Procedures Manual, and in coordination with the above change, the OIG is extending the time to conclude audit, inspection, investigation, evaluation, or review work by 2 months. This change is consistent with both the transfer of detailed analysis work from the preliminary inquiry to the audit/inspection/investigation stage of our work, and the historic timeframes for completing audit work given available staffing resources.
