Inspector General Offices
In the United States there are Offices of Inspectors General at
all levels of government: federal, state, and local. At the federal
level, the primary purpose of an Inspector General (IG) is to
provide an independent and objective assessment of the effectiveness
and efficiency of agency activities, full and current accounting of
problems and deficiencies, and oversight of agency compliance with
federal laws and regulations. IGs accomplish their mission primarily
through the conduct of independent audits, inspections, and
investigations of programs and activities.
