Semiannual Report to Congress
The Inspector General Act of 1978 (Public Law 95-452), as amended, requires that the Inspector General report semiannually to the head of the Department and the Congress on the activities of the office during the 6-month periods ending March 31 and September 30. The semiannual reports are intended to keep the Secretary and the Congress fully and currently informed of significant findings and recommendations by the Office of Inspector General.
