The Office of Inspector General (OIG) was established in 1992 under House Rule 2. The OIG’s mission is to provide recommendations for improving the performance, accountability, and integrity of House financial, administrative, and technology-based operations by performing independent audit, advisory, and investigative services in a nonpartisan manner. In collaboration with the Committee on House Administration, the OIG continues to do its part to contribute to a more effective and efficient House support structure by identifying and helping mitigate significant risks to the House; highlighting opportunities for improving the efficiency of House operations; and serving as a constructive critic, helpful advisor, and positive change agent.
