Good Things Come in Twos

A quarter of a century. Twenty-five years. It’s a long time, no matter how you say it. And that’s how long it’s been since we were created. That’s right, on September 30, 1996, President Clinton signed legislation that established us — the U. S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General — as an independent entity reporting directly to the Postal Service Governors. Prior to this, postal oversight was done by the Postal Inspection Service, which reported to the Postmaster General.

 

The OIG Testifying Before Congress

From time to time the OIG, usually represented by the Inspector General (IG), is asked to testify before a Congressional committee or subcommittee. Our agency may be asked to testify about various aspects of Postal Service operations, our investigations into such areas as drug trafficking, or an overview of issues raised in a recent audit or white paper.
