Component Mission

The Office of the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (IC IG) was established within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) by the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010. The IC IG's organizational divisions include Audit, Investigations, Inspections and Evaluations, Mission Support Division, the Center for Protected Disclosures, and Counsel to the Inspector General.

The Inspections and Evaluations (I&E) Division mission is to provide oversight of programs and activities within the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) responsibility and authority. The I&E Division conducts systemic and independent inspections and evaluations of ODNI components, Intelligence Community (IC) elements, and issues factual evidence-based findings that are timely, credible, and useful for managers, policymakers, and stakeholders. Conclusions drawn from the results of inspections and evaluations generate recommendations for decision makers to streamline operations, revise regulations as necessary, improve customer service, and minimize inefficient and ineffective procedures. We also improve the performance and integration of the ODNI and the broader IC. Using a multi-disciplinary staff and various methods for gathering and analyzing data, inspections and evaluations typically analyze information, measure performance, determine compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and/or policy, identify savings so that funds can be put to better use, share best practices or promising approaches, and assess allegations of fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement.
