From the Highlights: "OIG [Office of the Inspector General] inspected the operations of the Office of Special Investigations in the Bureau of Diplomatic Security. [...] [1] Respondents in an OIG-administered questionnaire indicated that the Office of Special Investigations provided both effective support and sufficient training to agents in the field. [2] Stakeholders from other Federal agencies and Department of State offices described the office as a collaborative partner. [3] The leadership team in the Office of Special Investigations fostered a positive work environment. [4] The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic delayed training required to certify new sexual assault investigators. [5] Outdated computer equipment hampered the office's efficiency and risked affecting response times for urgent inquiries from overseas regional security officers."
