Office of the Inspector General
The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is a division of the Office of the Secretary, responsible for conducting a full range of independent and objective audits; inspections; management analyses; and investigations. These assessments help to safeguard and efficiently manage the department's resources, operations, and business functions, and to prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse.
The OIG also coordinates the department's legislative audit response process, and provides technical assistance and advisory services to its audit customers. The OIG's efforts support the department’s goal of achieving the highest standards of good management, accountability, and professional integrity.
