Abstract : The importance of the Journal of Public Inquiry can best be illustrated by the content provided in the Fall/Winter 2009-2010 edition, which highlights the critical role inspectors general play in the federal government from investigations to congressional testimony to prioritizing accountability. The Journal increases public awareness and ensures that government decision-makers, Congress, and the public are cognizant of the pivotal role inspectors general play in the economy, efficiency, and effectiveness of our respective agencies and departments. The Journal includes six articles related to investigations, which address initiatives such as how to maximize recoveries in fraud cases and how to utilize a forensic document laboratory. One author shares his experiences in training foreign government officials unfamiliar with the IG concept, while another discusses the manner in which earlier inspectors general decisions likely influenced the perceptions of current IGs regarding their oversight responsibilities. FBI Director Robert Mueller, and Inspectors General Daniel Levinson and Brian Miller address different audiences in speeches on cyber security, health care, and federal law enforcement. In addition, we include testimony of Inspector General Paul Martin on the challenges facing NASA and the testimonies of Inspector General Arnold Fields and Deputy Inspector General Kenneth Moorefield before the Commission on Wartime Contracting regarding challenges in Afghanistan.
