The “Inspection Générale des Affaires Sociales” (IGAS) is the French Government audit, evaluation and inspection office for health, social security, social cohesion, employment and labour policies and organisations.
Established in 1967, IGAS is a high level internal unit which has oversight over all social programmes and operations through internal audits and investigations. IGAS also contributes, as an internal consulting unit, to the efficiency and quality of government decision making. It is a major source of advice for the Government in the area of social policies. It is also one of the most trusted sources of information and expertise for all public and private stakeholders and the general public in these areas.
Led by a General Inspector, currently Mrs. Nathalie Destais, it includes around 130 professionals from various backgrounds (ENA – National School of Administration, hospitals, labour administration, medical doctors, pharmacists, engineers, etc…).
