             (d) Each Inspector General shall report immediately to the head

           such head deems appropriate.

             (e)(1) Nothing in this section shall be construed to authorize
           the public disclosure of information which is -

               (A) specifically prohibited from disclosure by any other
             provision of law;

               (B) specifically required by Executive order to be protected
             from disclosure in the interest of national defense or national
             security or in the conduct of foreign affairs; or

               (C) a part of an ongoing criminal investigation.

             (2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1)(C), any report under this
           section may be disclosed to the public in a form which includes
           information with respect to a part of an ongoing criminal
           investigation if such information has been included in a public
           record.

             (3) Except to the extent and in the manner provided under section
           6103(f) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (26 U.S.C. 6103(f)),
           nothing in this section or in any other provision of this Act shall
           be construed to authorize or permit the withholding of information
           from the Congress, or from any committee or subcommittee thereof.

             (f) As used in this section -

               (1) the term ''questioned cost'' means a cost that is
             questioned by the Office because of -

                 (A) an alleged violation of a provision of a law, regulation,
               contract, grant, cooperative agreement, or other agreement or
               document governing the expenditure of funds;

                 (B) a finding that, at the time of the audit, such cost is
               not supported by adequate documentation; or

                 (C) a finding that the expenditure of funds for the intended
               purpose is unnecessary or unreasonable;

               (2) the term ''unsupported cost'' means a cost that is
             questioned by the Office because the Office found that, at the
             time of the audit, such cost is not sissuing any subpoena, after the Inspector General has
           decided to initiate, carry out or complete such audit or
           investigation or to issue such subpoena, if the Secretary
           determines that such prohibition is necessary to preserve the
           national security interests of the United States.

             (3) If the Secretary of Defense exercises any power under
           paragraph (1) or (2), the Inspector General shall submit a
           statement concerning such exercise within thirty days to the
           Committees on Armed Services and Governmental Affairs of the Senate
           and the Committees on Armed Services and Government Operations of
           the House of Representatives and to other appropriate committees or
           subcommittees of the Congress.

             (4) The Secretary shall, within thirty days after submission of a
           statement under paragraph (3), transmit a statement of the reasons
           for the exercise of power under paragraph (1) or (2) to the
           Committees on Armed Services and Governmental Affairs of the Senate
           and the Committees on Armed Services and Government Operations of
           the House of Representatives and to other appropriate committees or
           subcommittees.

             (c) In addition to the other duties and responsibilities
           specified in this Act, the Inspector General of the Department of
           Defense shall -

               (1) be the principal adviser to the Secretary of Defense for
             matters relating to the prevention and detection of fraud, waste,
             and abuse in the programs and operations of the Department;

               (2) initiate, conduct, and supervise such audits and

             and provide guidance with respect to all Department activities
             relating to criminal investigation programs;

               (6) monitor and evaluate the adherence of Department auditors
             to internal audit, contract audit, and internal review
             principles, policies, and procedures;

               (7) develop policy, evaluate program performance, and monitor
             actions taken by all components of the Department in response to

             audits conducted by the Comptroller General of the United States;

               (8) request assistance as needed from other audit, inspection,

             military departments); and

               (9) give particular regard to the activities of the internal
             audit, inspection, and investigative units of the military
             departments with a view toward avoiding duplication and insuring

             (d) Notwithstanding section 4(d), the Inspector General of the
           Department of Defense shall expeditiously report suspected or
           alleged violations of chapter 47 of title 10, United States Code
           (Uniform Code of Military Justice), to the Secretary of the
           military department concerned or the Secretary of Defense.

             (e) For the purposes of section 7, a member of the Armed Forces
           shall be deemed to be an employee of the Department of Defense,
           except that, when the Coast Guard operates as a service of another
           department or agency of the Federal Government, a member of the
           Coast Guard shall be deemed to be an employee of such department or
           agency.

             (f)(1) Each semiannual report prepared by the Inspector General
           of the Department of Defense under section 5(a) shall include

STATUTE      (a)(1) Notwithstanding the last two sentences of section 3(a),
           the Inspector General shall be under the authority, direction, and
           control of the Secretary of the Treasury with respect to audits or
           investigations, or the issuance of subpenas, which require access

               (E) intelligence or counterintelligence matters; or

               (F) other matters the disclosure of which would constitute a

             person or property authorized protection by section 3056 of title
             18, United States Code, section 202 of title 3, United States

             (2) With respect to the information described under paragraph

           decided to initiate, carry out, or complete such audit or
           investigation or to issue such subpena, if the Secretary determines
           that such prohibition is necessary to prevent the disclosure of any
           information described under paragraph (1) or to prevent significant
           impairment to the national interests of the United States.

             (3) If the Secretary of the Treasury exercises any power under
           paragraph (1) or (2), the Secretary of the Treasury shall notify

           the United States Secret Service, and the internal audits and

           of each such office shall promptly report to the Inspector General
           the significant activities being carried out by such office.

             (c) Notwithstanding subsection (b), the Inspector General may
           initiate, conduct and supervise such audits and investigations in
           the Department of the Treasury (including the bureaus and services
           referred to in subsection (b)) as the Inspector General considers
           appropriate.

             (d) If the Inspector General initiates an audit or investigation
           under subsection (c) concerning a bureau or service referred to in
           subsection (b), the Inspector General may provide the head of the
           office of such bureau or service referred to in subsection (b) with
           written notice that the Inspector General has initiated such an
           audit or investigation.  If the Inspector General issues a notice
           under the preceding sentence, no other audit or investigation shall
           be initiated into the matter under audit or investigation by the
           Inspector General and any other audit or investigation of such
           matter shall cease.

             (e)(1) The Inspector General shall have access to returns and
           return information, as defined in section 6103(b) of the Internal

             (2) Access by the Inspector General to returns and return
           information under section 6103(h)(1) of such Code (26 U.S.C.
           6103(h)(1)) shall be subject to the following additional
           requirements:

               (A) In order to maintain internal controls over access to
             returns and return information, the Inspector General, or in the
             absence of the Inspector General, the Acting Inspector General,
             the Deputy Inspector General, the Assistant Inspector General for
             Audits, or the Assistant Inspector General for Investigations,

             Internal Revenue Service written notice of the Inspector
             General's intent to access returns and return information.  If
             the Inspector General determines that the Inspection Service of
             the Internal Revenue Service should not be made aware of a notice
             of access to returns and return information, such notice shall be
             provided to the Senior Deputy Commissioner of Internal Revenue.

               (B) Such notice shall clearly indicate the specific returns or
             return information being accessed, contain a certification by the
             Inspector General, or in the absence of the Inspector General,
             the Acting Inspector General, the Deputy Inspector General, the
             Assistant Inspector General for Audits, or the Assistant
             Inspector General for Investigations, that the returns or return
             information being accessed are needed for a purpose described
             under section 6103(h)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (26
             U.S.C. 6103(h)(1)), and identify those employees of the Office of
             Inspector General of the Department of the Treasury who may
             receive such returns or return information.

               (C) The Internal Revenue Service shall maintain the same system
             of standardized records or accountings of all requests from the
             Inspector General for inspection or disclosure of returns and
             return information (including the reasons for and dates of such
             requests), and of returns and return information inspected or
             disclosed pursuant to such requests, as described under section
             6103(p)(3)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (26 U.S.C.
             6103(p)(3)(A)). Such system of standardized records or
             accountings shall also be available for examination in the same
             manner as provided under section 6103(p)(3) of the Internal
             Revenue Code of 1986.

               (D) The Inspector General shall be subject to the same
             safeguards and conditions for receiving returns and return
             information as are described under section 6103(p)(4) of the
             Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (26 U.S.C. 6103(p)(4)).

             (f) An audit or investigation conducted by the Inspector General
           shall not affect a final decision of the Secretary of the Treasury
           or his delegate under section 6406 of the Internal Revenue Code of
           1986 (26 U.S.C. 6406).

             (g) Notwithstanding section 4(d), in matters involving chapter 75
           of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (26 U.S.C. 7201 et seq.), the
           Inspector General shall report expeditiously to the Attorney
           General only offenses under section 7214 of such Code (26 U.S.C.
           7214), unless the Inspector General obtains the consent of the
           Commissioner of Internal Revenue to exercise additional reporting
           authority with respect to such chapter.

             (h) Any report required to be transmitted by the Secretary of the
           Treasury to the appropriate committees or subcommittees of the
           Congress under section 5(d) shall also be transmitted, within the
           seven-day period specified under such section, to the Committees on

           General shall promptly notify both Houses of the Congress in
           writing of the reasons for such removal or transfer.

             (2) For purposes of paragraph (1), the term ''Governors'' has the

           section, the provisions of subsection (a) of section 8C (other than

           respectively.

             (h)(1) No later than April 30, 1989, and annually thereafter, the

               (A) states whether there has been established in the Federal
             entity an office that meets the requirements of this section;

               (B) specifies the actions taken by the Federal entity otherwise
             to ensure that audits are conducted of its programs and

             issued by the Comptroller General of the United States, and
             includes a list of each audit report completed by a Federal or
             non-Federal auditor during the reporting period and a summary of
             any particularly significant findings; and

               (C) summarizes any matters relating to the personnel, programs,
