"IY' vl'f'y ¥y, OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL K> Department of Homeland Security Washington, DC 20528 / www.oig.dhs.gov April 30, 2013 The Honorable Janet Napolitano Secretary U.S. Department of Homeland Security Washington, DC 20528 Dear Madam Secretary: I am pleased to present our semiannual report, which summarizes the activities and accomplishments of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Inspector General for the 6-month period ended March 31, 2013. During this reporting period, our office published 50 management reports and 27 financial assistance grant reports. DHS concurred with 91 percent of the recommendations in our reports. As a result of these efforts, we identified $300.1 million of questioned costs, of which $147.6 million was not supported by documentation. We recovered $21.5 million as a result of disallowed costs identified from previous audit reports and from investigative efforts. We identified $15.9 million in funds that could be put to better use. In the investigative area, we issued 475 investigative reports, initiated 320 investigations, and closed 516 investigations. Our investigations resulted in 79 arrests, 59 indictments, 83 convictions, and 41 personnel actions. Additionally, we reported $3.2 million in collections resulting from fines and restitutions, administrative cost savings, and other recoveries. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the interest and support that you have provided to our office. We look forward to working closely with you, your leadership team, and Congress to promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in DHS programs and operations, and to help the Department accomplish its critical mission and initiatives in the months ahead. Sincerely, AR, Charles K. Edwards Deputy Inspector General
