The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) is a private, nonprofit corporation created to ensure universal access to non-commercial high-quality programming and telecommunications services. We invest in programs and services that are educational, innovative, locally relevant, and reflect America’s common values and cultural diversity. We encourage the development of programming that involves creative risks and that addresses the needs of unserved and underserved audiences, particularly children and minorities.
The CPB Office of the Inspector General provides independent and objective oversight of CPB operations and initiatives. The OIG provides the CPB Board of Directors, CPB management, and Congress with analyses and recommendations on controls and accountability over CPB operations and initiatives.
