OIG Follow-Up Reaffirms Solid Checkoff Management

OIG Follow-Up Reaffirms Solid Checkoff Management
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) reposted revised results of its financial review of Beef Board management of checkoff dollars, reaffirming that checkoff dollars were reimbursed in accordance with the Beef Act. While the revised report is reworded, in general, and provides more detailed information about complaints against the checkoff, it still showed that no mismanagement was found.


Following is the statement from CBB Chairman Weldon Wynn, in response to release of the latest OIG report:

“The Cattlemen’s Beef Board (CBB) is delighted that this review has been completed and published and that it confirmed the original report’s results. Once again, the OIG did not find any cause to question the relationship between CBB and its contractors, nor did OIG find inappropriate reimbursement of contractor expenses. The bottom line is that producers and importers can be assured by the OIG report, the peer review of that report and CBB’s mission of continual improvement that their checkoff dollars are being invested appropriately and effectively.”
