According to its final audit report of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s award of a contract for credit monitoring and identity theft services, the OPM inspector general noted flaws in the agency’s contracting, areas of noncompliance, and incomplete or unapproved contractual documents, Nextgov reports. The IG found the Office of Procurement Operations failed to comply with both Federal Acquisition Regulation and OPM procurement policies and procedures. The agency agreed with recommendations set forth in the audit, including updating its procurement policies and strengthening oversight. Meanwhile, an audit from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General found many systems within the agency were running on outdated, unsupported operating systems, with many having no security patches in place for years.
