About OIG

OIG’s mission is to safeguard the federal investment in our electoral system by conducting objective and meaningful oversight. OIG accomplishes this mission by conducting audits, investigations, and evaluations of EAC, its programs, its contractors, and its grantees. We aim to operate as a high performing organization and help EAC be as efficient and effective as it can be.
