This fourth edition of "The IG at the NRC" is intended to serve as a stand alone reference of the policies, procedures and statutory authority of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Office of Inspector General (OIG). In addition to excerpts from the IG Act of 1978, 5 U.S.C. App 3, it provides information about the OIG mission and functions and current policy and procedures.

Since my appointment as Inspector General for the NRC in July 1996, I have made education a priority. Maintaining this reference as a current source of information is an important part of this effort, both within the agency and for our other stakeholders. I request that you use this document so as to be better informed about the OIG. I also invite your questions and comments so that we may have a continuing dialogue on ways to combat and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse.
