SBA Office of Inspector General Releases Semi-Annual Report

Protect Law Group is committed to resolving your SBA loan default problems.  Our experienced attorneys can help you through the SBA loan default process with an SBA offer in compromise, administrative wage garnishment defense, or other SBA loan forgiveness processes.

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) provides independent, objective oversight to improve the integrity, accountability, and performance of SBA and its programs. The SBA deals with  challenges in carrying out its mission. Challenges include fraudulent schemes affecting all SBA programs, significant losses from SBA loan defaults, procurement flaws that allow large firms to obtain small business awards, excessive improper payments, and outdated legacy information systems.

The Semi-Annual Report identified several incidences of borrower fraud or other malfeasance that resulted in criminal or other punitive actions.  SBA borrowers should take note and refrain from similar activities as it may result in criminal charges and eliminate any chance of an SBA offer in compromise.
