The Department of the Treasury's Office of Inspector General (OIG) was established in 1989 by the Secretary in accordance with the Inspector General Act Amendments of 1988. The OIG is headed by an Inspector General who is appointed by the President of the United States with the advice and consent of the United States Senate. The Inspector General reports to the Secretary of the Treasury through the Deputy Secretary and provides the Secretary with independent and objective reviews of the department's operations.
The Inspector General is required to keep both the Secretary and the Congress fully and currently informed about the problems and deficiencies relating to the administration of department programs and operations and the necessity for corrective action. Serving with the Inspector General in the Immediate Office is a Deputy Inspector General.

SCAMMERS CLAIMING TO BE FROM THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT
Telephone and email scammers, many communicating from other countries, claim to be Treasury officials promising grants or threatening arrests unless payments are made. These thieves count on you believing them. But they’re lying, and trying to steal from you. Their actions are crimes under Titles 18 and 31 of the U.S. Code, and the Treasury Office of Inspector General is working to stop them.
