The Office of Evaluation (OE) provides actionable information to HUD and OIG to drive mission success. OE develops independent assessments in a timely, credible, and constructive manner for managers, policymakers, stakeholders, and others. OE products assess the efficiency, effectiveness, impact, and sustainability of HUD and OIG operations, programs, or policies and identify and recommend improvements and administrative action.
OE is comprised of five divisions. These divisions examine HUD programs, report findings, and recommend improvements; oversee and track HUD management’s efforts to address recommendations and improve operations; provide analytic data and statistical services to all of OIG; aid OIG’s management in identifying and mitigating enterprise risks to its mission success; conduct internal control reviews of OIG products and business practices; facilitate improvements to OIG using organizational design principles; and create OIG’s strategic plan.
