Since September 11, 2001, protecting our nation has been a paramount concern of the entire Federal establishment. The IG community plays a significant role in reviewing the performance of agency programs and operations that impact homeland security. To a large extent this has been accomplished through collaborative efforts between multiple IG offices.
On June 7, 2005, the PCIE Vice-Chair established a PCIE Homeland Security Roundtable. The Roundtable supports the Inspector General community by sharing information; identifying best practices; and, participating on an ad hoc basis with various external organizations, and governmental entities.
