The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) was created by the Government Printing Office Inspector General Act of 1988, Title II of Public Law 100-504 (October 18, 1988). The mission of the GPO OIG is to provide leadership and coordination, and to recommend policies to prevent and detect fraud, waste, abuse and mismanagement, as well as to promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in GPO's programs and operations. The OIG offers an independent and objective means of keeping the GPO Director and the Congress fully informed about problems and deficiencies relating to the administration and operations of the GPO.
