OEI’s mission is to protect the integrity of HHS programs, as well as the health and welfare of beneficiaries, by conducting evaluations that provide timely, useful, and reliable information and advice to decision makers. OEI interns will be responsible for helping to conduct short- and longer-term, nationally scoped studies to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of HHS programs; identify potential fraud, waste, or abuse; and assess program compliance. Interns will also be responsible for helping to produce high-impact and high-quality public reports of the results. As part of this, interns will be expected to do some or all of the following: develop evaluation objectives and approaches; design appropriate methodologies to collect data (e.g., interviews, questionnaires); analyze qualitative and quantitative data; synthesize and interpret data verbally and in writing; write clearly; and work effectively and collaboratively within teams. Our unique role as an oversight agency will allow interns to make recommendations to decision makers to save taxpayer dollars and improve programs.
