U.S. Department of State Office of Inspector General

Together with its own Diplomatic Security agents, the U.S. Department of State hires private security contractors to protect diplomats overseas, train foreign police forces, assist in drug eradication programs, and protect embassies and other U.S. installations abroad. The Office of Inspector General (DoS OIG) for the U.S. Department of State, an independent investigatory body, performs specialized security inspections and audits in support of the Department's mission to provide effective protection to U.S. personnel, facilities, and sensitive intelligence information. DoS OIG also investigates instances of contract fraud, waste, and mismanagement that may constitute either criminal wrongdoing or violation of Department regulations.

OIG reports may be redacted, and some are classified. To request a full copy without redactions or a report not listed here, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to U.S. Department of State. Unclassified summaries of all OIG reports are presented in the Inspector General's Semiannual Report to the Congress.
