"The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) in the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is an independent entity that reports to both the Attorney General and Congress. The OIG's mission is to investigate allegations of waste, fraud, and abuse in DOJ programs and personnel and to promote economy and efficiency in DOJ operations. The OIG now has jurisdiction to review programs and personnel in all DOJ components, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), the U.S. Attorneys' Offices, and other DOJ organizations. Enclosed is the report required by Section 1001 of the USA PATRIOT Act, Public Law 107-56. Section 1001 directs the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to undertake a series of actions related to civil rights or civil liberties allegations against Department of Justice employees and to report on these actions every six months to the Judiciary Committees of the Senate and House of Representatives. This report, our second under Section 1001, describes the OIG's activities in implementing these responsibilities for the six-month period from June 15, 2002, until December 15, 2002."
