The United States Secret Service’s acquisition management program office, established in 2011, has adequate oversight and management of its acquisition process, complies with DHS acquisition guidance, and has implemented some best practices. However, the Secret Service does not have its own guidance for acquisitions valued at less than $300 million and, at the time of our audit, the component did not have a designated Component Acquisition Executive.
Consistent with CDC guidance, most Office of Inspector General employees are currently serving the American people remotely. We are determined to keep interruptions to our operations to a minimum, and we appreciate your patience during this time.
