Principles and Standards

The OIG has adopted the Investigative Principles and Standards for an Office of Inspector General— also known as the Green Book—established by the Association of Inspectors General (AIG). The AIG, organized on October 26, 1996, is a national, non-profit membership organization for agencies and professionals in the inspector general community. The AIG promotes excellence in the inspector general community by establishing and encouraging adherence to office-wide and discipline-specific quality standards.
