Annual Plans

Each year, the OIG produces an annual work plan that presents the major initiatives and priorities we intend to undertake to assist the U.S. Department of Education (Department) in fulfilling its responsibilities to America’s taxpayers and students. The plan details the assignment areas and resources that the OIG plans to devote to evaluating the efficiency, effectiveness, and integrity of Department programs and operations. The plan incorporates suggestions from Department leaders and staff, Congress, and the Office of Management and Budget.

Below you will find links to our annual work plans issued since 2008. If you have any questions pertaining to the information included in these plans, or if you would like a copy of plans issued before 2008, please contact the OIG Public Affairs Office.
