Abstract Several articles in this issue of the Journal explore opportunities to incorporate technology as a way to bring together individuals in non- traditional formats to enact positive change and develop department-wide best practices. This issue also highlights the need to adapt the best practices of private industry sectors to government operations. Private industry incentivizes streamlining and simplifying business processes do more with less. OIGs and their respective departments can address efficiencies in order to establish leaner business operations. Offices of Inspectors General should not forget the tools already available while looking toward the future. The effective usage of suspension and debarment programs discussed in this issue reiterates the value of administrative actions as well as dispelling common myths. Suspensions and debarments protect government interests by excluding companies and individuals that are not responsible from participating in federal contracts. This issue emphasizes the diverse areas of oversight of the IG community and our shared endeavor to detect and deter fraud, waste, and abuse, and promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in the federal government.
