In addition to identifying wasteful spending, criminal activity, and employee misconduct, OIGs issue recommendations that address fundamental issues of agency management that we have identified in our audits and reviews. We very much appreciate the Committee's interest in these open recommendations through your request to us each year for information about them. As you are aware, there are thousands of open OIG recommendations that address the effective and 3 efficient operations of the agencies we oversee, and we will continue to press for their prompt implementation."
