USAID OIG is proud to present its Semiannual Report to Congress for the period beginning October 1, 2022 through March 31, 2023.
During this reporting period, our 183 performance and financial audits and evaluations covered $53.4 billion in funds, generated 118 recommendations for improved operations, and identified over $9 million in questioned costs. Our investigative work resulted in over $63 million in monetary results, 18 referrals for criminal prosecution, and referrals of 17 individuals and organizations for consideration of government-wide suspension and debarment, including UN officials found to have committed sexual exploitation and abuse.
The challenges requiring the attention of the agencies we oversee continued to mount—from the dire effects of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, to rising global hunger and food insecurity, to corruption and democratic backsliding in regions across the world. The scale and complexity of these issues underscore the importance of our role and the critical need for independent and objective oversight.
