Welcome to the Federal Election Commission (FEC), Office of Inspector General (OIG) homepage. The OIG mission is to detect and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse, and violations of law and to promote economy, efficiency and effectiveness in the operations of the FEC. The OIG strives, as an agent of positive change, to promote improvements in the management of FEC programs and operations by independently conducting audits, evaluations and investigations.
