On September 27, 2013, the OIG issued Audit Report 13-19, Evaluation of SBA’s Implementation of the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010. The objective of this evaluation was to determine if the SBA met statutory reporting requirements of the Modernization Act in its 2014 Agency Performance Plan and 2012 Agency Performance Report.
The OIG evaluated the SBA’s Performance Management reporting, to include its 2013 and 2014 Agency Performance Plans, 2011 and 2012 Agency Performance Reports, and Agency Quarterly Performance Update presentations. The OIG also evaluated a limited sample of program performance indicators to understand how performance information is reported to the SBA Performance Management Office. The OIG performed this review in accordance with Quality Standards for Inspection and Evaluations issued by the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency.
The OIG found the SBA to be generally compliant with the Modernization Act’s reporting requirements; however, the OIG identified omissions in a few areas. The OIG made one recommendation to help improve the SBA’s Modernization Act Reporting.
