You are one of the team - Day One!

You will receive training and be part of an audit team from day one. You will be assigned a supervisor and sponsor to help you quickly learn and acclimate. During your first few days on the team, you will participate in an overview to become familiar with various business functions at the NSA and within the Intelligence Community (IC). Throughout the 12-week period, you will have the opportunity to work on IG audits that provide meaningful recommendations for programmatic change within the Agency and influence the direction of the Intelligence Community and DoD.

Be the premier fact finder for the Agency!

The NSA/CSS core missions are to protect U.S. national security systems and to produce foreign signals intelligence information. In 1961, the NSA Office of the Inspector General (OIG) permanently instituted the IG function. The NSA OIG has the authority to conduct inspections, audits, investigations, special inquiries, and other reviews of programs and operations at NSA/CSS.
The NSA OIG Audit Division offers a wide variety of opportunities for individuals to broaden their knowledge of corporate Agency operations and work with a diverse staff. As a member of the NSA OIG Audit Division, the selectee will research, plan and conduct independent audits and related reviews of Agency programs and operations, in accordance with Government Audit Standards. The audits and reviews are designed to ensure compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and standards and to improve the Agency's efficiency and effectiveness.
As an NSA summer intern, you will work within an audit team evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of NSA programs. The specific audit responsibilities include:

- Assess and evaluate internal controls within the context of the audit objective;
- Identify and evaluate criteria to measure performance and evaluate compliance;
- Conduct interviews within the context of an audit or evaluation;
- Gather and analyze audit evidence and compare observed results to specified requirements in the criteria;
- Identify problems and develop recommendations to improve the Agency's efficiency and effectiveness; and
- Write work papers and reports outlining results and findings from audits and evaluations.

The selectee should be comfortable working in a team and must be able to communicate (orally and in writing) with OIG management and audit teams about technically complex issues. The selectee should demonstrate process-oriented thinking, strong problem solving-skills, and a commitment to discerning the truth.

Specific skills obtained may include:

- Gain a working knowledge of the OIG's audit processes
