Office of Special Investigations

The Office of Special Investigations' 1988 Investigators' Guide to Sources of Information, GAO/OSI–88-1, was well received by the investigative community. When the guide was first published, we promised to update it periodically and requested your assistance. Your responses have helped us make this 1992 version, we hope, an even more useful locator of new, imaginative, and often overlooked sources of information for investigators.

This guide again contains sources of information—such as various offices within federal, state, and local governments—and lists the types of information these sources provide. Licensing and regulatory agencies at all levels of government are excellent sources for investigators. However, the guide should be used in conjunction with a full knowledge of federal and state privacy laws and access requirements.

We once more request your assistance in providing periodic updates. If you discover new sources that you believe other investigators may find useful, please write to me at the following address: Office of Special Investigations, U.S. General Accounting Office, 600 E. Street, N.W., Suite 1000, Washington, D.C. 20548.

Our common goal is to carry out thorough, useful investigations. I hope that you find this guide beneficial in pursuit of this goal.

Rubell the

Richard C. Stiener
