The IG Act requires each inspector general in the federal government to prepare a semiannual report, which summarizes the activities of his or her respective office for the past six months.
The report for Oct. 1 to March 31 is submitted to the chairman of the agency no later than April 30, and the report for April 1 to Sept. 30 is submitted by Oct. 31.
The chairman may comment on the report but may not change it. Within 30 days of receipt, the chairman transmits the report to Congress, together with management’s report on the status of audit and inspection recommendations and agreed-upon actions, and any remarks by the chairman.
Links to the most recent semiannual reports are provided below. To view semiannual reports dating back to September 1989, go to Archive of OIG publications.
