The Administrative Remedies Division advances the Inspector General’s statutory mission to promote and support the appropriate use of administrative remedies by the Department of Energy.  The division proposes and maintains policies regarding administrative remedies, provides training for employees likely to encounter material that may support the imposition of administrative remedies, coordinates with other DOE OIG elements and stakeholders throughout the Government, prepares appropriate referrals to suspension and debarment officials, and supports those referrals throughout the administrative process.     


The division is a stand-alone legal support office within the OIG that collaborates with all other DOE OIG divisions.  In addition to referring matters to the Department of Energy suspension and debarment officials, the division may prepare or assist with referrals to suspension and debarment officials at other Federal agencies.
