Welcome to the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General's new web site. We hope this site provides enhanced usability and functionality for users.  

Featured prominently on our website is our new agency seal.  The seal's flame symbolizes shining a light on the Department of Justice to accomplish the Office of the Inspector General's mission -- to promote integrity, efficiency, and accountability.  In the words of Former Supreme Court Justice Brandeis, “sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants."  The seal's colors represent our agency values -- blue represents integrity, the red represents excellence and passion, and the white represents trust and transparency. 

Also new on our website is the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General's FY 2020-2024 Strategic Plan.  You can read our updated mission statement, vision, and values below. Click the button below to read the full Strategic Plan.
