Rss Feed Introduces New Office of Inspector General Section

On Friday, April 15, unveiled a new section on the Office of Inspector General (OIG) to inform the public about the Agency’s internal oversight organization.

The OIG is an independent office of the CIA headed by the Inspector General. It promotes economy, efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability in the management of CIA activities by performing independent audits, inspections, investigations, and reviews of CIA programs and operations.

Among his responsibilities, the IG is required by law to:

  • Conduct, supervise, and coordinate independent audits, inspections, and investigations related to the programs and operations of the CIA.
  • Keep the Director of the CIA (D/CIA) fully and currently informed concerning violations of law and regulations.
  • Provide a semiannual report to the D/CIA summarizing the activities of the OIG.
  • Report immediately to the D/CIA any serious or flagrant abuses, problems, or deficiencies relating to the administration of CIA programs or operations.
  • Ensure that CIA’s Congressional oversight committees are kept similarly informed.

To better serve the Agency and its mission, the OIG is divided into three operational staffs:

  • Audit
  • Inspection
  • Investigations

The new OIG section includes information such as:

  • Who We Are
  • Careers
  • History
  • How to Report Matters to the IG
