The State of Georgia Office of the Inspector General (GA OIG) actively participates in the OIG Community by attending federal IG meetings and by hosting local meetings for state OIGs, federal OIGs, and other investigative agencies. GA OIG also works joint cases with other state and federal OIG agencies. GA OIG's policies and procedures model after the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency's Quality Standards for Investigations.
Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE)
CIGIE was statutorily established as an independent entity within the Federal executive branch by the "The Inspector General Reform Act of 2008," P.L. 110-409 to address integrity, economy, and effectiveness issues that transcend individual Government agencies, and
increase the professionalism and effectiveness of personnel by developing policies, standards, and approaches to aid in the establishment of a well-trained and highly skilled workforce in the offices of the Inspectors General (IG). In addition to setting standards, CIGIE provides training to the IG community. When possible, GA OIG agents receive training from CIGIE's Inspector General Criminal Investigator Academy.
