Office of Inspector General

The FDIC’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) is an independent organizational unit established under the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended.  OIG’s statutory mission is to promote the economy, efficiency, and effectiveness of FDIC programs and operations, and to protect against fraud, waste, and abuse.  OIG carries out this mission by conducting audits, evaluations, and investigations; reviewing existing and proposed legislation and regulations; and keeping the FDIC Chairman and the Congress fully informed about problems and deficiencies relating to the FDIC programs and operations.  These activities directly support and augment the Corporation’s efforts to maintain stability and public confidence in the nation’s financial system.

To help accomplish its mission and achieve its vision, the OIG has established external strategic goals that align with the FDIC’s strategic goals, programs, and activities.  In addition, OIG has established an internal strategic goal to build and sustain high-quality staff, effective operations, OIG independence, and mutually beneficial working relationships.
