SSA OIG employees turn limited budget into 20-to-1 return on investment

The Social Security Administration Office of Inspector General almost tripled its goal to return $8 for every $1 spent on the agency.

In part two of our special report, Rainmakers and Money Savers, Federal News Radio goes behind the scenes of the SSA OIG to examine the work federal employees are doing on a daily basis, resulting in billions of dollars going straight into the federal coffers.

Those hurdles are detailed in a study by the National Academy of Public Administration. Project Director Roger Kodat joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss the major challenges at SSA over the next 10 years.
