OIG Career Opportunities

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) was established by the Congress in response to rapid urbanization and the increased importance of housing and community development. In 1978, the Congress created the Office of Inspector General (OIG) for HUD and other federal agencies. The Office is an independent unit that conducts and supervises audits and investigations of HUD programs and operations. As a member of the OIG staff, you can affect HUD policy direction and program changes as well as minimize fraud, waste, and abuse in HUD's programs, activities, and functions.

A career in the OIG will provide you with the opportunity for varied assignments, job satisfaction, and professional growth. The OIG is comprised of four distinct organizations with different authorities and responsibilities: the Office of Audit, the Office of Investigation, the Office of Management and Technology, and the Office of Legal Counsel.

Is the OIG for You?

As a member of the OIG staff, you will be exposed to diverse, challenging assignments. If you think you are ready to work hard and dedicate your professional time to a distinctive career in public service, then you might have the prerequisites for a professional position with OIG.
