Office of the Inspector General

Legislation and Regulations

The IG Act directs the OIG to review proposed legislation and regulations relating to the programs and operations of the Department. Although the Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs reviews all proposed or enacted legislation that could affect the Department’s activities, the OIG independently reviews proposed legislation that affects it and legislation that relates to waste, fraud, or abuse in the Department’s programs or operations.

During this reporting period, the OIG reviewed a variety of legislation, including the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act of 2007, the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007, the Improving America’s Security Act, and the Freedom of Information Act Amendments of 2007.
