We will seek to...

  • Recruit and develop a diverse and highly professional and proficient workforce.
  • Increase the efficiency and effectiveness of OIG operations.
  • Identify significant risks to Agency operations and to civil liberties and individual privacy.
  • Conduct timely, authoritative, and impactful oversight consistent with applicable standards.
  • Communicate effectively within the OIG, with the Agency, and with overseers and the public.


We conduct independent oversight that promotes Agency respect for Constitutional rights, adherence to laws, rules, and regulations, and the wise use of public resources.  Through investigations and reviews, we detect and deter waste, fraud, abuse, and misconduct, and promote the economy, efficiency, and effectiveness of Agency operations.


We carry out our responsibilities consistent with our core values of integrity, independence, and transparency.  We embrace a collaborative working environment that supports OIG personnel in developing and utilizing their skills and creativity.
