The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Inspector General (OIG) received a hotline complaint regarding misuse of mobile devices within the Office of Environmental Information (OEI). We reviewed the effectiveness of OEIs internal controls for mobile devices issued to OEI employees and contractors, focusing on issuance, disconnection, multiple devices, inappropriate use, and tracking and recovery. OEI provides technology services for EPA, including providing telecommunications and other technologies to support Agency activities. Executive Order 13589, issued on November 9, 2011, requires agencies to assess device usage and establish controls on unused or underutilized equipment or services, as well as limit the number of employee devices.
