  • Promote economy and efficiency;
  • Prevent and/or detect fraud, waste, and abuse;
  • Recommend corrective action concerning fraud, abuses, weaknesses, and deficiencies;
  • Report expeditiously to the appropriate law enforcement agency when there is a reasonable basis to believe a violation of criminal law occurred; and
  • Advise in the development of performance measures, standards, and procedures for evaluating agency programs, and administrative policies and procedures.

To ensure an appropriate balance between audit, investigative and other accountability activities, the Office of the Inspector General is composed of two sections, Internal Audits and Investigations.
