                            JOINT RESOLUTION


 
  Commending the Inspectors General for their efforts to prevent and 
detect waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement, and to promote economy, 
efficiency, and effectiveness in the Federal Government during the past 
                               25 years.

Whereas the Inspector General Act of 1978 (5 U.S.C. App.) was signed into law on 
        October 12, 1978, with overwhelming bipartisan support;
Whereas Inspectors General now exist in the 29 largest executive branch agencies 
        and in 28 other designated Federal entities;
Whereas Inspectors General work to serve the American taxpayer by promoting 
        economy, efficiency, effectiveness, and integrity in the administration 
        of the programs and operations of the Federal Government;
Whereas Inspectors General conduct audits and investigations to both prevent and 
        detect waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in the programs and 
        operations of the Federal Government;
Whereas Inspectors General make Congress and agency heads aware, through 
        semiannual reports and other communications, of problems and 
        deficiencies in the administration of programs and operations of the 
        Federal Government;
Whereas Congress and agency heads utilize the recommendations of Inspectors 
        General in the development and implementation of policies that promote 
        economy and efficiency in the administration of, or prevent and detect 
        waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in, the programs and operations 
        of the Federal Government;
Whereas Federal employees and other dedicated citizens report information to 
        Inspectors General regarding the possible existence of an activity 
        constituting a violation of law, rules, or regulations, or 
        mismanagement, gross waste of funds, abuse of authority, or a 
        substantial and specific danger to public health and safety;
Whereas Inspector General audits and investigations result in annual 
        recommendations for more effective spending of billions of taxpayer 
        dollars, thousands of successful criminal prosecutions, hundreds of 
        millions of dollars returned to the United States Treasury through 
        investigative recoveries, and the suspension and debarment of thousands 
        of individuals or entities from doing business with the Government; and
Whereas for 25 years the Inspectors General have worked with Congress to 
        facilitate effective oversight to improve the programs and operations of 
        the Federal Government: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That Congress--
            (1) recognizes the many accomplishments of the Inspectors 
        General in preventing and detecting waste, fraud, abuse, and 
        mismanagement in the Federal Government;
            (2) commends the Inspectors General and their employees for 
        the dedication and professionalism displayed in the performance 
        of their duties; and
            (3) reaffirms the role of Inspectors General in promoting 
        economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in the administration of 
        the programs and operations of the Federal Government.
