Office of Audit

The Office of Audit conducts comprehensive financial, information technology, and performance audits of SSA’s programs and operations. These audits identify opportunities for improvement and recommend corrective action to shape change in SSA programs and operations, leading to increased efficiency and greater effectiveness.

Annually, the Office of Audit identifies the Major Management and Performance Challenges facing SSA as it strives to fulfill its mission. The office develops a dynamic audit work plan to address the areas identified. In addition, it conducts short-term management and program reviews focused on issues of concern to SSA, Congress, and the public.

Audit work is performed in accordance with government auditing standards, as appropriate.
