Office of Inspector General

Who We Are

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) was legislatively established in 1988 (Public Law 100-504) with an amendment to the Inspector General Act of 1978 (Public Law 95-452).  The act requires the Inspector General to independently and objectively:

  • Conduct audits and investigations of the Federal Labor Relation Authority's (FLRA) programs and operations;
  • Work with the FLRA management team for activities designed to promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness or that prevent and detect fraud and abuse in programs and operations; and
  • Report OIG activities to the Authority and the U.S. Congress semiannually as of March 31 and September 30 each year.   

What We Do

The OIG's mission is to provide independent oversight by conducting audits, investgations and other reviews of the programs and operations of the FLRA.

We carry out our mission by:

  • conducting independent audits and reviews of FLRA programs and operations, the security of information technology, compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and the accuracy of financial reports; and
  • investigating allegations of fraud and abuse.
