Performance Indicator Audit - Recruiting and Employment Indicators

September 26, 2014

SSA reported it used PIs to gauge its progress in meeting strategic goals and objectives outlined in its Strategic Plan. We reviewed two performance indicators in SSA’s Performance and Accountability Report for Fiscal Year (FY) 2012: (1) Recruit and Hire Veterans and Disabled Veterans and (2) Employ Individuals with Targeted Disabilities.

The purpose of this audit was to assess SSA’s performance indicators (PI) for Recruiting and Hiring Veterans and Disabled Veterans as well as Employing Individuals with Targeted Disabilities. Specifically, we (1) documented the sources of data collected to report on the PIs; (2) identified and tested critical controls of systems from which the specified performance data were gathered; (3) tested the adequacy, accuracy, reasonableness, completeness, and consistency of the underlying data for the specified PIs; and (4) recalculated the values reported for the indicators to verify accuracy.
