The Office of Inspector General (OIG), works within the U. S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to promote efficiency and effectiveness, and prevent or stop waste, fraud and abuse in departmental programs. We do this through audits and investigations. OIG also consults with the Congress about programs in progress and proposed new laws and regulations. The Inspector General Act of 1978 gives the Office of Inspector General autonomy to do its work and independence. OIG carries out its mission by issuing audit reports, evaluations, management advisories, investigations, and other products with findings and recommendations to improve program delivery and performance. Pathways Interns will be entry-level analysts and work with audit teams in a developmental capacity to conduct reviews of the efficiency and effectiveness of Department of Transportation programs. They will make key contributions to a variety of possible products, including assisting with audit reports, briefings to DOT leadership or congressional stakeholders, management advisories, congressional testimonies, and other duties as assigned.
