Inspections provide senior management with a systematic and independent review of mission operations, programs and management practices as well as an analysis of compliance with legislation and policies. Evaluations provide information on the continued relevance of DFATD policies and programs, the extent to which these programs are achieving their objectives, and the value of their impact. For further information, please contact the Office of the Inspector General.
