Mission & Function of the NAVFAC Inspector General
The mission of the NAVFAC's Inspector General (IG) is to act as the "eyes and ears of the Commander" to maintain the morale and well-being of Navy personnel assigned to NAVFAC and its subordinate commands. The IG acts as NAVFAC's focal point for issues relating to U.S. government, DoD and the U.S. Navy and NAVFAC's integrity, efficiency, fraud, waste, and abuse programs. Detection and prevention of inefficiencies, mismanagement, wasteful and abusive practices are among the major functions performed. Other responsibilities include command self-assessments and verification via on-site inspections, hotline and special investigations, audits, command evaluation, management control, and follow-up on these matters for the claimancy.
The inspection process consists of coordination and oversight of a comprehensive, command-wide self-assessment program as a foundation for on-site inspections of subordinate activities. Investigative responsibilities include conducting investigations of non-independent entities and Headquarters allegations, administration of the Hotline Programs within NAVFAC Headquarters and subordinate activities, and conducting special surveys (including fraud surveys), inspections, special inquiries and/or studies as requested by the Commander. The IG is responsible for the Command's internal review process, accomplished through management of the Command Evaluation and Management Control Programs within NAVFAC Headquarters and subordinate activities.
