- Full Report:
In response to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Department of the Treasury's actions to establish a statutory Office of Inspector General (OIG).
GAO found that: (1) Treasury consolidated audit resources from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the U.S. Customs Service, the Secret Service, and administratively established OIG to form statutory OIG; (2) there were no indications that OIG assumed any improper operational responsibilities in the Treasury law enforcement bureaus; and (3) there was no evidence that OIG had been prohibited from performing any audit or investigation.
