Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO surveyed inspectors general (IG) to obtain: (1) information on their organizational structure, staffing, and workload; and (2) their views on current policy issues affecting them.

GAO noted that: (1) IGs' work covers a broad spectrum of agency programs and operations; (2) in general, the IGs responded that they have the expertise and resources necessary to assemble the teams of staff needed to perform the major types of work for which they are responsible; (3) additionally, while they generally anticipate the level of work to remain the same or slightly increase across the range of areas they review, IGs anticipated the greatest increase to be in information technology reviews; and (4) IGs also indicated that they were generally satisfied with their role and the overall legislation governing them, but did identify certain potential areas for modification.
