Welcome to the U.S. Agency for International Development, Office of Inspector General (OIG) web page. The OIG is a dynamic, proactive, and responsive organization serving the American public. The OIG operates under the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended.
Major responsibilities of the OIG are to detect and prevent fraud, waste, abuse, and violations of law and to promote economy, efficiency and effectiveness in the operations of the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the United States African Development Foundation, and the Inter-American Foundation. Upon request, the OIG also provides oversight services to the Overseas Private Investment Corporation.
The OIG fulfills these responsibilities by conducting audits, investigations, inspections, and other reviews. We also keep the Congress informed regarding the findings and recommendations of our reviews. Accomplishments are reported in semiannual reports to the Congress as prescribed in the OIG Act. We strive for excellence in program integrity and performance.
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) is responsible for providing audit and investigative services to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), the African Development Foundation (ADF), and the Inter-American Foundation (IAF).
The OIG is organized into four operational units: Audit, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, Investigations, and Management. There are also six overseas field offices, each headed by a Regional Inspector General or Country Director, located in Baghdad, Iraq; Cairo, Egypt; Dakar, Senegal; Islamabad, Pakistan; Kabul, Afghanistan; Manila, Philippines; Pretoria, South Africa; San Salvador, El Salvador; and Tel Aviv, Israel. These offices maintain close working relationships with the USAID missions in their regions or countries. This field presence enables auditors and investigators to carry out their responsibilities efficiently.
