Office of Inspector General

Semiannual Report to Congress: October 1, 2019 – March 31, 2020

Report #EPA-350-R-20-001, May 2020

The OIG continues to move steadily forward, conferring with congressional and Agency leadership; issuing reports; and investigating waste, fraud, and abuse. Congress and the public rely on our independent oversight mission even more so in times of crisis, depending on us to ensure that the Agency continues, unabatedly, to protect human health and the environment.

OIG Independence of EPA

The EPA's Office of Inspector General is a part of the EPA, although Congress provides our funding separate from the agency, to ensure our independence. We were created pursuant to the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended Exit.
