Office of the Inspector General


In 1989, the Secretary of the Treasury, as a result of the 1988 amendments to the Inspector General (IG) Act, established the Office of Inspector General (OIG). Section 2 of the IG Act sets out the following major duties and responsibilities of the IG:

  • Conduct and supervise audits and investigations.
  • Provide leadership and coordination.
  • Promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in programs and operations.
  • Prevent and detect fraud and abuse in programs and operations.
  • Provide a means for keeping the Secretary and the Congress fully and currently informed about problems and deficiencies in programs and operations.
  • Submit semiannual reports to the Congress, through the Secretary, summarizing the activities of the OIG during the preceding period that disclose problems, abuses, and deficiencies in the administration of programs and operations of the Department. These semiannual reports also discuss the recommendations for corrective action that the IG has made.
