Audit Report 1-14: Audit of Paper Report Production
On August 3, 2001, the OIG issued Audit Report 1-14, Audit of Paper Report Production. The purpose of this audit was to determine whether the SBA was producing unneeded paper reports. Unneeded paper reports were defined as those that were automatically printed instead of being printed on demand. The OIG found that several recipients had no use for the hardcopy versions of the reports and seldom used them. Others suggested that they would rather receive electronic versions of the report then print as needed. The OIG made two recommendations.
