Government Accountability Integrity Reliability Office Collection

Excerpt
Excerpt: EPA moved the national ombudsman from the Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, whose decisions the ombudsman was responsible for investigating, to the Office of Inspector General (OIG). In the OIG, the ombudsman reports to a newly created Assistant Inspector General for Congressional and Public Liaison, unlike in other federal agencies where the ombudsmen report to the highest levels of the agency. Moreover, the Assistant Inspector General and not the ombudsman controls the ombudsman?s budget and staff. In addition, the ombudsman no longer has authority to decide which complaints warrant further review, as was the case prior to the reorganization. The OIG?s draft operating procedures indicate that many of the office?s existing procedures for tracking, documenting, and reporting the results of investigations will apply to the ombudsman.
