The OIG conducts financial and performance audits of internal Agency functions and of participants in SBA programs to promote the economical, efficient, and effective operation of SBA programs.
Audits give SBA managers an objective and systematic assessment of how well their offices are carrying out their SBA-related programs and operations. Financial audits examine the presentation of financial information, internal controls, and adherence to financial requirements. Performance audits assess operations in terms of economical use of resources.
Most of these reports are also published to Oversight.gov.
