With the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) going through a period of unprecedented, historic operational change while also facing skyrocketing crime from outsiders and bad apples within its ranks, it is imperative to strengthen USPS’s Office of Inspector General (OIG USPS).
USPS OIG audits USPS programs to identify savings, inefficiencies, and ways they can work better. It also investigates and unearths crimes within USPS, including internal mail theft, narcotics trafficking, health care fraud, contract fraud, and financial fraud (e.g., embezzlement).
Indeed, USPS has a perfect storm of issues and challenges that provide a textbook case regarding the need for a strong and vigorous OIG USPS.
