Office of Audit
The Office of Audit conducts comprehensive financial, information technology, and performance audits of SSA’s programs and operations. The office also conducts short-term management and program reviews focused on issues of concern to SSA, Congress, and the public. Audit work is performed in accordance with government auditing standards.
Financial audits, required by the Chief Financial Officers’ Act of 1990, assess whether SSA’s financial statements fairly present the agency’s financial position, results of operations, and projections related to the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and Disability Insurance trust funds.
Information technology audits, including audits required by the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014, assess and test the effectiveness of SSA’s information security policies, procedures, and practices.
