    MISSION OF THE OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

    The mission of the City of Chicago Office of Inspector General (IGO) is to root out corruption, waste, and mismanagement, while promoting effectiveness and efficiency in City government. The IGO is a watchdog for the taxpayers of the City, and has jurisdiction to conduct investigations and audits into most aspects of City government.

    In order to fully inhabit its ordinance and better prosecute its mission, the IGO is separated into five sections: Investigations, Legal, Audit & Program Review, Hiring Compliance, and Administration.
