Plain Writing Act

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) is committed to the principles of the Plain Writing Act of 2010, which requires all Federal agencies to communicate with their taxpayer-stakeholders in a straightforward manner.  We strive to make all of our reports and other public information as clear and concise as possible. You have a right to know what the OIG is doing with your tax dollars to detect and deter waste, fraud and abuse in DHS programs.  We have a responsibility to make our work as transparent as possible by adhering to the guidelines of the Plain Writing Act.  For more information, visit Plain Language website.
