One of the sources Daniel Schuman includes in his list of tools for Congressional Information deserves special mention.
- Oversight.io | Bringing into sight the US government’s oversight community
Most every piece of the US federal government has an office called the Inspector General (IG). An IG’s job is to keep their part of the government honest and efficient through strong, independent oversight. IGs produce a lot of work, but their reports are scattered all over the Internet. Some get the attention they deserve, and some don’t. It would be a shame for good oversight to go overlooked. We gather them in one place so you can freely search and subscribe to them.
