IG Act

The Office of the Legislative Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives has prepared an updated version of the Inspector General Act of 1978 (IG Act), as amended, after the enactment of the Inspector General Empowerment Act of 2016, Public Law 114-317 (IGEA). This updated version of the IG Act is formatted well and reflects useful annotations throughout.*

*Please note, CIGIE has identified errors in the Office of the Legislative Counsel’s version of the IG Act. The majority of such errors are limited to the scope of the delayed impact of certain provisions of the IGEA pursuant to section 7(b)(2) of the IGEA. These provisions, in any case, will be uniformly in effect by no later than June 14, 2017. CIGIE is working to resolve these errors with the Office of the Legislative Counsel and will provide a link to any corrected version here.
