Federal Inspectors General

The Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended, establishes the responsibilities and duties of an IG. The IG Act has been amended to increase the number of agencies with statutory IGs. In 1988 came the establishment of IGs in smaller, independent agencies. There are now 67 statutory IGs.

"The Inspector General Reform Act of 2008" created the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) combining what were formerly known as the "PCIE" (President's Council on Integrity and Efficiency) and the "ECIE" (Executive Council on Integrity and Efficiency). The CIGIE has 7 committees, Audit, Human Resources, Information Technology, Inspection and Evaluation, Investigations, Integrity, and Legislation as well as several related organizations. The CIGIE also provides specialized training to the IG community.
