The Audits specialty is responsible for conducting independent and objective audits of DIA operations. Audits provide essential accountability and transparency over Government programs and enable decision makers to improve operations, reduce costs, comply with laws and regulations, and strengthen internal controls to reduce the potential for fraud and illegal acts. The OIG initiates audits based on legal requirements, risk assessments, and input from legislators, oversight bodies, DIA leadership and officers, and the public. DIA OIG auditors generally conduct two types of audits: performance and financial statement audits. Audits cover a wide range of topics, and require auditors to develop general auditing skills including data gathering, analysis, and critical thinking, as well as subject matter expertise in areas such as contracting, information technology, and financial statements audits.
