United States Department of Labor Office of Inspector General

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) conducts audits and evaluations to review the effectiveness, efficiency, economy, and integrity of all DOL programs and operations, including those performed by its contractors and grantees. This work is conducted in order to determine whether: the programs and operations are in compliance with the applicable laws and regulations; DOL resources are efficiently and economically being utilized; and DOL programs achieve their intended results.[1]

In addition, the OIG is unique among Inspectors General because it has an “external” program function to conduct criminal investigations to combat the influence of labor employee benefit plans, labor-management relations, and internal union affairs.[1]
