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.
