The OIG announces the recently released 2024-2026 Strategic Plan. This new Plan presents the OIG’s goals and objectives and how they align with our mission, core values, and the Inspector General’s new management direction. With this plan, the OIG aims to drive positive change at LSC and its grantees through impactful and agile oversight work that promotes effective program operations and prevents fraud, waste, and abuse.
The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) Office of Inspector General (OIG) has identified that monitoring of student loan assistance programs may present an emerging risk. Although our work to date has involved a few recently completed and ongoing oversight engagements, based on our professional judgment and experience we believe that LSC could consider taking steps to proactively enhance monitoring of student loan assistance funds.
Ransomware and other cyberattacks pose significant threats to the LSC grantee community. To assist LSC grantees and subgrantees in detecting and preventing these threats, the OIG encourages grantee IT departments to subscribe to CISA’s email updates. CISA’s notifications provide information about the most up-to-date security threats and solutions, such as recommended security patches.
