The Joint IG Program enhances oversight of the Department by coordinating efforts and strengthening interagency relationships. The Joint Inspector General Activities Branch interfaces with Joint/Defense IGs worldwide while interpreting and advising on doctrine and procedures; managing mobile training teams and staff assist visits; producing Joint IG Guides; and overseeing Joint IG Qualification Courses.
