The Board of Governors' Office of Inspector General (OIG) functions in accordance with the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended. The OIG plans and conducts audits, attestations, inspections, evaluations, investigations, and law and regulation reviews relating to the Board's programs and operations and to those functions that the Board has delegated to the Federal Reserve Banks. In addition, it retains an independent auditor each year to audit the Board's financial statements. The OIG also makes recommendations and conducts activities to promote economy and efficiency, enhance policies and procedures, and prevent and detect waste, fraud, and abuse in Board and Board-delegated programs and operations. The OIG keeps the Congress and the Chairman of the Board of Governors fully informed about serious abuses and deficiencies and about the status of any corrective actions.
During 2007, the OIG completed twelve audits, attestations, inspections, evaluations, and other assessments and conducted a number of follow-up reviews to evaluate action taken on prior recommendations. The OIG also closed six investigations and performed numerous legislative and regulatory reviews.
