Office of the Inspector General



Congratulations on your new job with the U.S. Department of Treasury, Office of Inspector General! Treasury OIG is headed by an Inspector General, who is appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate. The Inspector General exercises his or her duties and responsibilities on behalf of all Treasury programs and operations except those of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).
The Treasury Office of Inspector General (OIG) was established by the 1988 amendments to the Inspector General Act of 1978 (IG Act) as an independent and objective organization within the Department. The Treasury OIG is responsible for promoting the integrity, efficiency, and effectiveness of Treasury programs and operations.
The law requires OIG to:
  1. Conduct and supervise audits and investigations relating to Department programs and operations;
  2. Provide leadership and coordination and recommend policies for activities designed to promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness and prevent and detect fraud and abuse in Department programs and operations; and
  3. Provide a means for keeping the Secretary and the Congress fully and currently informed about problems and deficiencies relating to the administration of such programs and operations and the necessity for and progress of corrective action.
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. This work is accomplished through our Offices of Audit and Investigations, with support from the Offices of Counsel and Management. In addition, our Office of Small Business Lending Fund Program Oversight has responsibility for overseeing the Department's Small Business Lending Fund.
Treasury OIG is headquartered in Washington, D.C and has one field audit office, located in Boston, Massachusetts.
Again Congratulations, you are about to join an outstanding team of individuals who are dedicated to the challenge of preventing waste, fraud and abuse in Treasury operations and programs. I'm sure you will find your work with the Treasury OIG both challenging and rewarding.
