Office of Auditor General

To help the Department of Education meet its educational goals, the mission of the Office of Auditor General (OAG) is to identify the most critical functions performed by the Department, to analyze the risks to the effective performance of those functions, and to promote the alignment of resources to address those risks. This mission embraces a wide array of responsibilities, including not only the traditional internal audit function of overseeing regulatory compliance and promoting fiscal integrity and revenue preservation, but also the broader role of assessing the effectiveness and efficiency of the organization in achieving its critical goals.
