DHS/OIG/PIA-004 TeamMate Application


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) is responsible for conducting and supervising independent and objective audits, inspections, evaluations, and investigations to prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse and promote economy, effectiveness, and efficiency within DHS programs and activities. The OIG carries out these functions via the strategic programs of the Office of Audits and the Office of Inspections and Evaluations. TeamMate is a Windows based audit management application installed on OIG servers located at OIG’s primary data center. TeamMate provides an internal common platform for documenting, sharing, reviewing, and tracking work throughout the lifecycle of an audit, inspection, and/or evaluation of a DHS program or activity (not individuals). Auditors and Inspectors collect and process information in the form of work papers, interviews, and on-site visits during audits, and/or inspections/evaluations. Information collected during an audit or inspection/evaluation is scanned or uploaded into OIG’s TeamMate. Auditors and Inspectors may request and receive personally identifiable information (PII) and sensitive PII (SPII) during an audit, inspection, and/or evaluation, when needed and relevant to the review. This personally identifiable information and sensitive PII may be included, for example, in supporting documents provided to OIG or obtained through OIG’s fact-finding.
