Mission Statement

The mission of the FLRA Office of Inspector General is to provide FLRA leadership an independent, objective assessment of the organization's efficiency and effectiveness.  This is accomplished through proactive evaluations of FLRA operational processes.  The Inspector General provides necessary oversight and serves as a catalyst for improving and maximizing the efficiency and integrity of FLRA programs and operations.  The goal of the Inspector General's work is to maximize the effectiveness of FLRA programs by evaluating performance and identifying ways to make these programs more efficient and effective.  In addition, the FLRA Inspector General strives to prevent and detect fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement of the FLRA's resources and operations that could adversely impact the organization's integrity and ability to perform its mission in a timely, customer responsive manner.

The primary objectives of the Office of Inspector General are:

  • to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of FLRA program and resource management and identify best practices as well as factors impeding the accomplishment of the FLRA's mission;
  • to assist the Chairman and FLRA management in carrying out their responsibilities by providing them with objective and timely information on the conduct of FLRA operations, together with the Inspector General's independent analysis, conclusions, and recommendations; and
  • to use evaluations, internal reviews, and the more traditional assessment tools of audits, inspections, and investigations, when necessary, to maximize oversight and strengthen system and process controls to maximize government integrity and minimize occurrences of fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement.
