The DoD Joint IG Program enhances oversight of the Department by coordinating efforts and strengthening interagency relationships. DoD OIG’s Joint Inspector General Activities Division interfaces with Joint/Defense IGs worldwide while interpreting and advising on doctrine and procedures; managing the Joint IG qualification courses, conducting mobile training teams and staff assistance visits; and overseeing and maintaining policy and doctrine impacting Defense/Joint IGs. We share your goals to support the warfighters, increase mission readiness, and combat fraud, waste, and abuse. We look forward to engaging with you and working together to strengthen the Defense oversight community.
