The Office of Inspector General was established by the Inspector
General Act of 1978. The Office is responsible for providing agencywide
audit and investigative functions to identify and correct management and
administrative deficiencies which create conditions for existing or
potential instances of fraud, waste, and mismanagement.
The Committee recommends $24,600,000 for fiscal year 2003, the same
as the President’s budget request. The Committee commends the NASA IG’s
diligence in addressing issues of fraud and abuse.
The Committee recommendation includes a series of provisions,
proposed by the administration, which are largely technical in nature,
concerning the availability of funds. These provisions have been carried
largely, in prior-year appropriation acts.
