OIG publishes Quarterly Report for first quarter of FY21

The Office of Inspector General published its first Quarterly Report for fiscal year 2021. The report summarizes the excellent work performed by the OIG during the past three months.

This quarter, the OIG recovered just over $95 million. In addition, nearly $81 million was identified for potential future recoveries, and another nearly $41 million was achieved in cost avoidance.

The OIG Quarterly Report details the office’s efforts this past quarter in detecting, preventing, and deterring fraud, waste, and abuse in the expenditure of funds in Texas health and human services programs. The Quarterly Report includes OIG’s performance metrics, identified trends seen in OIG investigations, an overview of audit and inspections reports produced, as well as other work done by the OIG. You’ll also find highlights across all divisions for the quarter and a feature detailing how OIG is using data to identify potential fraud, waste and abuse related to COVID-19. You can read this report, and previous Quarterly Reports, here.

The next OIG quarterly report will be published in March.
