The OIG Reports to Congress

Our Semiannual Report to Congress is a record of our work over a 6-month period that reflects our mission of ensuring efficiency, accountability, and integrity in the U.S. Postal Service. As required by law, we publish the SARC – as we affectionately call it – twice a year.

Platinum Anniversary

Twenty years ago, E.R. was the number one TV show, Macarena topped the pop music charts, and Independence Day (the original) was the highest-grossing movie of the year. A stamp cost 32 cents, and, oh yes, the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General (OIG) was created.

On September 30, 1996, President Clinton signed the amended Inspector General Act of 1978 to establish a separate enforcement and oversight agency for the Postal Service, moving that responsibility to the newly created and fully independent OIG.

 

Our Spring Semiannual Report to Congress

Two times a year, we publish a report of our work and activities for a just-ended 6-month period. This Semiannual Report to Congress (SARC) is required by law, but it’s also a chance for us to share our record of work with our many stakeholders. The work reflects our mission to help maintain confidence in the postal system and improve the Postal Service’s bottom line through independent audits, investigations, and research.
