HISTORY of the IG ACADEMY
The Inspector General Criminal Investigator Academy was officially established at the
Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), Glynco, Georgia, in February 1994
per a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the FLETC and the President's Council
on Integrity and Efficiency (PCIE). The MOU acknowledged “the significant benefits of
efficiency and effectiveness which are derived from a consolidated approach to training.”
In November 2000, The IG Criminal Investigator Academy was established in Public Law 106-422
“for the purpose of performing investigator training services for offices of inspectors
general created under the Inspector General Act of 1978.”
The Inspector General Reform Act of 2008 combined the two existing IG councils, the
PCIE and the Executive Council on Integrity and Efficiency, into one statutory
Council of IGs on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) to be chaired by an IG. The
mission of the CIGIE is to address integrity, economy and effectiveness issues
that transcend individual agencies, and to increase the professionalism and
effectiveness of IG personnel by maintaining one or more training academies.
The Investigations Committee of the CIGIE is recognized as the board of directors
for the Academy, subject to general review and oversight of the CIGIE. The
Academy Director is designated as the agency representative at FLETC for the
CIGIE members without on-Center agency representation.
