Office of Inspector General

Cameron R. Hume, Deputy Inspector General

Welcome to the website of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) for the U.S. Department of State and the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG). This website is your best resource for information regarding the mission and activities of OIG, as well as the text and summaries of OIG reports and publications.

OIG inspects each of the approximately 260 embassies, diplomatic posts, and international broadcasting installations throughout the world, to determine whether policy goals are being achieved and whether the interests of the United States are being represented and advanced effectively.  Additionally, OIG performs specialized security inspections and audits in support of the Department's mission to provide effective protection to our personnel, facilities, and sensitive intelligence information. OIG also audits Department and BBG operations and activities to ensure that they are as effective, efficient, and economical as possible.  Finally, OIG investigates instances of fraud, waste, and mismanagement that may constitute either criminal wrongdoing or violation of Department and BBG regulations.

Please contact us to report any allegations of fraud, waste, and mismanagement regarding the Department or the BBG.  If you have general questions or comments about our website or our work, please contact the OIG webmaster.
