The NSA OIG is committed to promoting effectiveness, efficiency, and accountability within the Agency. We have the following vision, mission, and values:
Professional People… Professional Products… Cryptologic Integrity
The NSA/CSS Office of the Inspector General is the independent agent for individual and organizational integrity within the Agency. Through professional inspections, audits, and investigations, we work to ensure that the Agency respects Constitutional rights, obeys laws and regulations, treats its employees and affiliates fairly, and uses public resources wisely to accomplish its mission. We also work with other IGs in the Defense and Intelligence Communities to advance these common goals.
We value dedication, courtesy, teamwork, productivity, accountability, objectivity, and independence while adhering to professional standards.
Our products and services will be timely, thorough, reliable, constructive, clear and technically sound. We recognize and promote excellence, and we seek to maintain a workplace that allows our people to develop and exhibit these qualities in their work.
The OIG has the authority to conduct inspections, audits, investigations, special inquiries, and other reviews of the programs and operations of NSA/CSS. This oversight authority promotes effectiveness, efficiency, and accountability within the Agency; ensures compliance with laws and regulations; and assists in detecting and preventing fraud, waste, and mismanagement in NSA/CSS programs and operations.
If you observe or are aware of fraud, waste, and mismanagement in NSA/CSS programs or operations, please report your concern to the NSA OIG. Click here for information on reporting complaints, anonymity, and the OIG hotline.
