ABSTRACT

Appointment Methods for Legislative Branch Inspectors General [September 28, 2021]   [open pdf - 781KB]

From the Document: "The inspector general (IG) for the Library of Congress (LOC), Kurt Hyde, retired from his position on August 31, 2021 [hyperlink]. When an IG position becomes vacant, a new appointment is made pursuant to the requirements and procedures laid out in that IG's enabling statute. For most IGs, this will be the Inspector General Act of 1978 (IG Act; 5 U.S.C. Appx.). For some IGs, including the IG for the LOC and the four other statutory IGs in the legislative branch, this authority is found in other statutes. [...] This Insight provides a brief introduction to IG appointments and explains the appointment procedure for the five particular legislative branch IGs. It provides background information on the appointment rule requirements for these IGs as well as the relevant statutory provisions."
