Strengthen Planning, Transparency, and Accountability

Planning, transparency, and accountability are critical factors in effective management.  Failure to plan properly to meet its mission and challenges will lessen the Social Security Administration's ability to provide its services efficiently and effectively now and in the future.  Similarly, mismanagement and waste, as well as a lack of transparency for citizens in government operations, can erode trust in SSA's ability to tackle the challenges it faces.

The following audit reports examine this challenge further and detail SSA's efforts to address it.

Our Audit reports may contain sensitive and confidential information requiring safeguarding or limited disclosure consistent with law, regulations and Government-wide policies. Previously, we limited the distribution of reports containing this type of information. We now redact that specific information to allow maximum distribution of all reports.
