Abstract I am proud to present the Department of Defense Inspector General Semiannual Report to Congress for the reporting period October 1, 2009 to March 31, 2010. We have been diligently working on behalf of the warfighters and taxpayers to identify fraud, waste, and abuse and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Department s operations and programs. During this reporting period, we continued directing our resources towards areas of greatest risk and challenge for the Department by conducting audits, investigating criminal activity, and evaluating key programs and operations. For example, we performed 61 audits, evaluations, intelligence reviews, and assessments. In addition, the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, working closely with other law enforcement agencies, was responsible for returning $1.9 billion in fines, restitutions, and recoveries to the U.S. government. Our investigations resulted in 159 indictments, 122 convictions, 112 suspensions, and 40 debarments. Moreover, our auditors identified $4.2 billion of funds put to better use, and our Defense Hotline handled nearly 8,000 contacts. Independent oversight of the Department ensures public confidence and protects the warfighters. The Department is one of the largest and most complex enterprises in the world. It has a budget larger than most sovereign countries. The workforce itself is comprised of more than three million people, spread across thousands of facilities, and the Department has been engaged in military operations in Southwest Asia for nine years now, placing incredible stress on its personnel and equipment. The sheer size and scope of the Department's operations makes our mission of providing oversight and driving change an enormous challenge.
