Washington, D.C. (Oct. 3, 2017) –House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy and Ranking Member Elijah Cummings issued the following statement applauding a new website,  Oversight.gov, launched yesterday by the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE):

 “We welcome the release of Oversight.gov, a new website that allows the public to access thousands of Inspector General reports across the federal government through a central, searchable repository,” said Gowdy and Cummings. “This site will lead to greater accountability for agencies, more savings to taxpayers, and increased transparency into the IGs’ critical work in identifying and exposing waste, fraud, and abuse throughout the federal government.  We thank CIGIE and the Offices of Inspectors General for their hard work in developing this website and their ongoing efforts on behalf of the American people.” 

Oversight.gov is a central online location where users can access thousands of reports contributed by over sixty Inspectors General across government.  By creating a single repository, Oversight.gov enables the public and government officials to more easily access and search IG reports, audits, and recommendations across agencies and programs. 

 Inspectors General play a critical role in identifying and exposing waste, fraud, and abuse throughout the federal government.
