    The Office of Inspector General (OIG) is an independent component of the U.S. Department of State (DOS) and the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM). OIG has unusual statutory responsibilities and authorities that ensure its independence. For example, the Inspector General is, by statute, the appointing authority for all OIG personnel, rather than the Secretary of State.
