DOJ OIG Releases Management Advisory Memorandum of Concerns with the Absence of a Policy Regarding FBI Employees Emailing Child Sexual Abuse Material and Other Contraband

Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz announced today the release of a Management Advisory Memorandum to the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) with notification of concerns with the absence of an FBI policy regarding the transmission of child sexual abuse material (CSAM) and other contraband material over email by FBI employees. CSAM is a term used by the FBI to refer to child pornography.

Recommendations Issued by the Office of the Inspector General That Were Not Closed as of March 31, 2022

This report contains information about recommendations from the OIG's audits, evaluations, reviews, and other reports that the OIG had not closed as of the specified date because it had not determined that the Department of Justice (DOJ) or a non-DOJ federal agency had fully implemented them. The list omits information that DOJ determined to be limited official use or classified, and therefore unsuitable for public release.
