About the OIG
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) was established by the Inspector General Act of 1978 (Public Law 95-452) as an independent unit responsible for promoting economy, efficiency, and effectiveness and detecting and preventing fraud, waste, and mismanagement in the General Services Administration's (GSA) programs and operations. The OIG’s mission is to help the GSA effectively carry out its responsibilities and to protect the public interest by bringing about positive change in the performance, accountability, and integrity of GSA programs and operations. This is accomplished primarily by performing independent financial, program, information technology, contract and compliance audits; criminal and civil investigations; reviews of proposed legislation and regulations; and by providing other services to senior GSA, Congressional, and law enforcement officials.
