What is the Veterans Affairs OIG
The Department of Veterans Affairs VA Office of the Inspector General (OIG) was created pursuant to the Inspector General Act of 1978 to provide oversight at preventing inefficient or unlawful operations within the VA by performing audits, inspections, investigations, and reviews that improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and integrity of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ programs and services, and prevent and address fraud and other crimes, waste, and abuse, as well as advance efforts to hold responsible individuals accountable.
What Does the Veterans Affairs OIG Investigate
Veterans Affairs OIG conducts criminal and administrative investigations involving allegations of wrongdoing affecting VA programs and operations.
