OIG Strategic Plan: Oversight of COVID-19 Response and Recovery

Share this Information

The emergence of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has created unprecedented challenges for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and for the delivery of health care and human services to the American people. HHS leads the Federal public health and medical response during public health emergencies.

This plan sets forth the four goals that drive the Office of Inspector General’s (OIG’s) strategic planning and mission execution with respect to HHS’s COVID-19 response and recovery. These goals are to:

  1. Protect people
  2. Protect funds
  3. Protect infrastructure
  4. Promote effectiveness of HHS programs—now and into the future

This plan highlights our main objectives and ongoing and potential OIG work to advance each goal.
