We’re proud to share that some of our colleagues were recently recognized for their outstanding efforts related to OIG missions to improve Social Security programs and to protect citizens from fraud and abuse.

The OIG congratulates Steve Schaeffer, Assistant Inspector General for Audit, for recently receiving the Distinguished Donald L. Scantlebury Memorial Award.

The award recognizes Schaeffer's sustained exemplary leadership in making significant financial improvements at SSA, and for his contributions to the federal CFO and IG communities. It is one of the highest awards a senior executive can receive for ongoing excellence in financial management.

Above, Schaeffer (left) receives the award last month at the Joint Financial Management Improvement Program (JFMIP) Conference in Washington, D.C. JFMIP is a cooperative effort of the Treasury, the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Personnel Management and the Government Accountability Office. The agencies work to improve and coordinate financial management policies and practices throughout the government.

We also congratulate three OIG investigators, shown below, who were recently recognized "for their outstanding contributions to the investigation and prosecution of identity theft crimes in Maryland."
