 In a January 18, 2012 letter, Senator Barbara Mikulski requested our assistance in evaluating SSA’s compliance with EEOC orders and the accuracy of the Agency’s reporting. This request was in response to an ongoing EEO complaint alleging SSA officials submitted inaccurate documentation as proof of compliance with the EEOC. While we were gathering information to address the Senator’s request, on February 15, 2012, the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a decision that SSA misled the EEOC in this case. Therefore, we shifted our focus to a broader review of SSA’s compliance with EEOC orders.
